MONITORING THE TURTLE POPULATION AND ITS TRAVEL

Specimen registration in species monitoring nights
Specimen registration in species monitoring nights

We are currently in the low season for turtle arrivals, but our work continues and we are on the verge of starting another season for collecting eggs, we are 50% of our goal, but continuous work, we are currently working with the marking of turtles, to monitor their populations on our site. 100 turtles have been tagged so far. And there have been 2 reports of black turtles (Chelonia mydas), whose records have been found between Oaxaca, Mexico and Barra de Santiago, El Salvador.During tagging, the following information is obtained: Place of tagging, moon phase, tide, number of eggs, among other data with the aim of guaranteeing control of nesting turtles, through a database.

We have a record of some turtles that have come out more than once to lay their eggs during the season, letting us know that the turtle has more than one position in the season.

We are about to start a new season, and we hope to have your support this July 20th in the BONUS DAY campaign!!!
