107 female loggerheads tagged by Rangers on Sal island this year but we still have around 20 un-named turtles.  

If you would like to adopt an adult turtle it costs €30 and you will receive lots of information about your turtle (how big she is, where she nested and how many times and how successful her nests were).  email to arrange your adoption. 

Why not adopt a turtle for a friend or relative - it makes a great gift for Christmas.
