All about turtles in Cabo Verde

An excellent initiative by the Scientific Committee of TAOLA (The Capeverdean Sea Turtle Network) has brought together all the literature that has ever been published on turtles in the archipelago.  It includes research articles, chapters in books & doctoral theses and the aim is to provide a useful resource for sea turtle workers in the country and abroad.

The list can be downloaded here.
