2017 ANNUAL REPORT
Highest hatching success.
In 2017 the project was led by a resident Project Coordinator, Stephen Lee, and a Marine Biologist, Mariana Pereira. During 2017 year TWC aimed to:
Increase endangered Green and Hawksbill turtle hatchlings’ chances of survival through implementing a controlled hatchery and monitoring in-situ nests.
Educate tourists, resort staff and local communities on the need for turtle and marine conservation in the area.
Establish contact with other local conservation projects and standardise protocols and data collection.
Collaborate with governmental organisations.
Study and monitor our surrounding coral reefs and marine habitats.
With this report we aim to present the work conducted by the conservation team during 2017. The report is divided into two major parts; Turtle Conservation and Marine Conservation, with a third part dedicated to other projects, finances and recommendations for the future.
