Through 2018 Society for Protection of Turtles will be tracking green turtles nesting in the Karpaz Peninsula and loggerhead turtles nesting at Alagadi. Through collaboration established with small-scale fisheries, we will also track both green and loggerhead turtles foraging in Famagusta Bay, which are subject to heavy fisheries bycatch. We aim to establish priority marine habitats around key nesting sites toward establishing Marine Protected Areas in Karpaz region and to better understand fisheries threats in the Famagusta region, toward developing bycatch mitigation solutions. The project is supported by the Mediterranean Basin Program of the MAVA foundation.
