Work with local NGOs on Boa Vista to preserve the habitats of nesting loggerhead turtles.
The pristine beaches of Cabo Verde (in particular the islands of Boa Vista, Sal, and Santa Luzia) are one of the most important habitats in the world for nesting loggerhead (Caretta caretta) turtles.
The nesting season runs from July until mid October, peaking in August when thousands of female turtles can be found emerging from the tropical Atlantic waters, returning to the beaches where they were born to lay their eggs. The eggs incubate for around 60 days before hatching. Turtle camps are erected on remote beaches, staffed throughout the season by rangers who patrol the beaches at night with dogs and drones - conducting a census, moving vulnerbale eggs into hatcheries and protecting the turtles from poachers.
You can visit the camps on accredited tours and alos volunteer for local NGOs engaged in conservation and community action.
