The first turtle arrived!!!!

Its with excitement that we announce that the first turtles have started to arrive in both Boavista and Sal, according to our colleagues of Natura 2000 and SOS Tartarugas!

The first nest was recorded in Ervatão beach (Boavista) on the 25th of May, while the first track was recorded on the 4th of June. These early records have surprised us all. Will it be the anticipation of a great season?

WE HOPE SO!! :-)

In the meantime, Turtle Foundation preparations are underway, with camp coordinators and local assistants finding their way to Boavista in the next few days. Equipment are all set, and plans are underway for an early start (planned for the 15th of June).

Now we just have to wait for our first turtles appearing on "our" beaches. Exciting!!! We will let you know, for sure!
