|SN = Serra Negra, AL=Algodoeiro, CF=Costa Fragata, ML = Mont Leão|
|One of the season's last nesting turtles brutally killed on Mont Leão|
Another worry is that more and more turtles are being driven to this beach as the areas further south on Algodoeiro become less and less available because of construction and lighting. It has been proven that turtles will choose less suitable habitat if their usual beaches are not available. So while it seems that there are still enough beaches on Sal for turtles, the beach with the best conditions has always been the southwest and the beaches they are now forced to choose are much more hazardous and may not have a very good hatching success rate.

Mont Leão will be a priority for 2011 if we can work out a way to have more reliable transport and how to support more volunteers and soldiers at this beach.
