Eco Clubs Turtle Monitoring in the Deep South
Secondary Eco club and Primary Wildlife club were up bright and early Saturday morning to stake out the beaches in the SW corner of Mahe. The big hope was to encounter a nesting hawksbill turtle and given that it was the peak of the season hopes were high. In the back of the minds of the intrepid group was the rare chance of being present at a nest hatching. Despite the endurance of blustering heat and bright sunshine the Eco clubs were unlucky on this occasion but saw plenty of evidence of recent nest sites and at Grand Police missed a nesting by an hour. Maybe we should have got up earlier! Many thanks to Sharon for driving the bus.
