Introduction

As part of a larger marine biodiversity project in Gabon, this year we are adding satellite tracking of green turtles from their foraging grounds in Corisco Bay. The project aims to examine size-based foraging patterns of turtles. These movement data will be integrated with a charaterization of the local habitat and an assessment of anthropogenic threats.

Project Partners

The partnerships' work in Gabon, which includes satellite telemetry of marine turtles (leatherback, green, and olive ridley turtles), training and capacity building in the use of fisheries vessel monitoring systems and assessing the distribution and abundance of dolphins and whales is funded by the Darwin Initiative, which is financed by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs of the UK Government under the project Darwin Marine Biodiversity Action Plan for Gabon, the Wallace Research Foundation, and, the Marine Turtle Conservation Fund (US Fish and Wildlife Service, US Department of the Interior).
