Bame turtle research camp

Our team of turtle monitors in Bame surveys 8 km of beach daily, the most important nesting site in Africa and one of the most important in the world for the endangered leatherback turtle.  They have been watching over these females and hatchlings for twenty years, gathering data that is helping to better protect the species as a whole.  This passionate and dedicated group has developed a deep knowledge of sea turtles that makes them among the foremost experts in the country.
