TURTLE FOUNDATION all set for a new season! .... by Joana at the Turtle Foundation

Turtle Foundation in Boa Vista island just finished setting the second of its three sea turtle protection base camps, and has officially started its season.
This year TF will protect the beaches of Curral Velho, Lacacão, Boa Esperança, Norte and Canto, ensuring that most of the nesting beaches along the north, northeast and south of the island are protected against poaching. The first camp to be set up was the one located in Lacacão beach, where the new RIU Touareg opened just a few weeks ago, and the new construction phase is due to start anytime soon. Additionally, TF will fund the local initiative Projecto “Varandinha – Povoação Velha”. With the work of TF, this group and Natura 2000, we are hoping that about 90% of the nesting beaches are fully protected, which is great news!
This past week, the staff received training in Lacacão Camp (see picture below). By the end of the week, all the bases will be operational!
If you would like to join one of our patrols during your stay in Boavista, or become a volunteer, please contact us at:

The Poacher Hunt - Aug 2010

Cheryl Thomas - Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Our team started regular census on this beach this month, only to find out with dismay and frustration the number of turtle carcasses accumulating every week.

Taking advantage of the presence of volunteers in the camp and a motivated team of soldiers, we started some patrols on this beach a few days ago, in hope of finding the poachers.  More
