Lemons Sharks and turtles

By Curieuse team | Project Team

We appreciate your ongoing support for the Shark and Turtle conservation project in the Seychelles.

Sicklefin lemon shark pups are an important part of the marine ecosystem and contribute to the diversity of coastal environments. Studying their behavior, growth, and development helps us to better understand the biology and conservation needs of lemon sharks as a whole.

Lemon shark pups are primarily found in shallow coastal waters, including mangroves, estuaries, and coral reefs. They are known to inhabit both saltwater and brackish water environments. Around Curieuse, they are found in a bay where there was originally a wall structure to create a space to farm turtles. This area allows for a semi protected environment for the pups.

 

 Lemon sharks are listed as Near Threatened by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). They face threats from overfishing, habitat degradation, and the impacts of climate change. Protecting their nursery habitats and implementing sustainable fishing practices are crucial for their long-term survival.

Your support has meant we are able to monitor the lemon shark population including the pups. Your funds have helped purchase resources to aid in monitoring processes.

 

Thank you for your generous and continued support as we work with our local and governmental partners to ensure the continued monitoring the sharks, turtles and the local marine ecosystem in Seychelles.
