Capeverdian Sea Turtle Network
The first conference for the newly formed Capeverdian Sea Turtle Network opened today with funding from the MCTF (US Govt sea turtle fund). The idea for the formation of this group is to promote better coordination and communication. Yesterday the main applicants for the grant met and today there will be delgates from all the municipalities and the department of environment who will share their plans for the coming season. Although there are many areas that need attention everyone is agreed that the preventing the killing of nesting females has to be the key priority.
