SOS Tartarugas works in Cape Verde protecting nesting loggerheads turtles (Caretta caretta) and their habitat. Cape Verde is the third most important nesting area for loggerheads in the world. Turtles are at risk from hunting for meat, stealing of eggs, removal of sand for building and unregulated tourism development. Our email is

Here's to our fantastic team!

So many incredible people help us to achieve our goal to stop the killing of turtles in Cabo Verde that it is impossible to get them all together at any one time, so we try to take several team photos each season.  Here is everyone we could gather yesterday.

Our team is made up of monitors & volunteers who live here plus international volunteers from many different countries.  We also host many people who work with turtles on different islands and come to us to increase their experience.  Then there are all the other members of TAOLA (The Capeverdean Sea Turtle Network) who we also consider to be our colleagues and part of our team.

So far this season the following have worked for or volunteered with SOS Tartarugas:
Manuel, Albert, Peter, Linda, Berta, Luizandra, Fogo, Ana Filipa, Marta, Andre, Ana Claudia, Jesus, Artemizio, Nick, Geoff, Lynn, Bucari, Dada, Guido, Anderson, Jacques, Sarah, Angela, Ana Sofia, Amanda, Artur, Nernon, Antonio, Ryan, Jean, Agrita, Judith, João, Sarah, Amber, Hugo, Ivanildo, Emma, Josilene, Lydia, Maria, Fernando, Adilson, Teresa, Rui, Alicia, Mariana, Fernando, Ronan, Alli, Neal, Antonio, Herculano, João, Hayley, Valerie.
