Sea Turtle Conservation

There are 7 different species of sea turtles in the world, and in Cape Verde we can find 5 of them, but the only one nesting in the archipelago are the Loggerhead turtles or Caretta caretta

6 of the 7 are now listed as threatened of extinction due to poaching, loss of nesting areas, light pollution, accidental catch and of course ocean pollutants such as plastics

Project Biodiversity works for the protection of wildlife in the Cape Verdean island of Sal against poaching and unsustainable development. Every year hundreds of sea turtles are saved and tens of thousands of new-born turtles released into the sea, making sure that our future generations have the chance to share the oceans with them.

What is Project Biodiversity?

To ensure Project Biodiversity (PB) can continue with their conservation work such as sea turtle rescue, beach cleaning (plastics) and local education, they need continued help with funding.

Sea Turtle Rescue
Each year the team collects endangered turtle nests around the island and move them to secured hatcheries.
In 2022, 2676 nests had to be moved of those 1706 were relocated to these  hatcheries resulting in 76,231  baby turtles being released.
Of those released, only 1 in 1000 are expected to survive and return in 20 – 25 years.

Beach Cleanings (plastics)
In 2017 more than 4.5 tonnes of marine debris was collected in ONE DAY!!

Local Education
In 2022 135 sea turtles are known to have been killed by poachers, however the actual number is expected to be much higher.
