Marine Turtle Strandings at Ponta do Ouro Partial Marine Reserve, Southern Mozambique




Beaches at the Ponta do Ouro Partial Marine Reserve (POPMR) in southern Mozambique are widely recognized as important nesting grounds for loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) and leatherback turtles (Dermochelys coriacea) (Costa et al. 2007; Videira et al. 2008). The adjacent waters are also vital for marine turtles, serving as feeding grounds for green (Chelonia mydas) and hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata) turtles (Hughes 1971).
