Turtles continue to nest on Sal - Oct 2010 - by Jacquie Cozens

Cheryl Thomas - Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Contrary to popular belief the season is not quite over! On Sunday we found two nests on Algodoeiro (one in front of Resort Group and one in front of Cotton Bay). Both nests were moved into the Surf Beach hatchery as we have encountered yet another problem in this area - dogs are digging up nests a few days before they are due to hatch - as human habitation grows so dogs follow. These two nests are expected to have a longer than usual incubation period and will probably not hatch until close to Christmas day. (Could make a great Christmas present).

There really is never a dull moment working with turtles on Sal and yesterday was no exception.  The day started with the worst possible news – a turtle had been killed on Kite Beach sometime between 3am and 6am last night. Two of the Rangers found her remains and let me know right away.  More

There will be more Beach Cleans during the season - dates TBA

Thank you from Linda & The SOS Team
