From Joana Hancock, Turtle Foundation Field Coordinator on Boavista:
According to our teams, Olive Ridleys might be nesting in Boavista. At least 3 turtles that match the description of an olive ridley have been found nesting in Curral Velho, Lacacão and Norte beach. This is very exciting news, as this species is considered rare in the island!!!
Also, if you are interested in the proceedings of the Second Annual meeting of the Cape Verde Sea Turtle Network (now called TAOLO), they are posted on our Facebook Cabo Verde page: http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=203554525161&topic=14575 Turtle Foundation
