Friends of Calhau & FC Panthers start a protection campaign
From September 1, 2010, the two associations will have a camp in Praia Grande with the aim of not only monitoring the species and protecting their nests, but also to raise awareness of the importance of preserving this species.
It is estimated that nowadays only 1% of Cape Verde's turtles are found nesting on São Vicente, a figure much lower than in previous years, highlighting the urgent need for more protection.
This activity is funded by the GEF (Global Environment Facility).
SOS congratulates our colleagues on this action and wish them every success!
