Marine Turtles of the Primeiras and Segundas Islands




Marine turtles represent a primeval component of the biological diversity of marine ecosystems. It is believed that during the Jurassic period marine turtles were abundant in tropical and sub-tropical waters (Frazier, 1999). It is further believed that the long-term survival of these marine species is at great risk (Van Dijk e Shepherd, 2004). For the past 200 years, the marine turtles’ ability to maintain their existaance has faced ever-increacing threat (Lutz & Musick, 1997), because of both natural and anthropogenic factors, although the consequences of the latter are more difficult to reverse.
