Sea turtle monitoring

OWB’s sea turtle monitoring programmes on both Mnemba Island (Zanzibar) and Vamizi Island (Mozambique) have supported over 20 years of research on the ‘Endangered’ green and ‘Critically Endangered’ hawksbill turtles; this invaluable dataset both supports and informs their protection. In this image, OWB’s researcher Gelica Inteca is doing a quick vitals check and taking measurements of a female green turtle, who was found on the rocks at low tide, stranded and exhausted after laying her eggs on Vamizi Island. This beautiful turtle was then gently assisted back into the ocean. CLICK HERE to learn more.
