Our latest video about protecting the precious turtles of Mozambique.
The Ponta do Ouro Partial Marine Reserve is part of Africa’s first marine Trans Frontier Conservation Area. Around 77% of the marine turtles monitored in Mozambique nest in the Marine Reserve. It is the most important leatherback and loggerhead turtle nesting ground along the Mozambican coast.
What makes the Marine Reserve’s turtle monitoring programme all the more exciting, is that it links up with the turtle monitoring programme of iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a World Heritage Site, that is now in its 43rd season.
Good news for Mozambique’s turtles!
