CVSTN join forces with INDP in Sao Nicolau

INDP (Institute for the development of fisheries) and CVSTN (Capeverdian Sea Turtle Network) start joint activities this week in an effort to diminish the slaughter of turtles on the island of Sao Nicolau.  Limited data exists for this island, but CVSTN and INDP together with the local government authorities hope to develop and train guards who will not only protect turtles but will collect data and tag them as well.
