Description

The Nevis Turtle Group (NTG) is dedicated to the development of a Sea Turtle Conservation Program for Nevis that involves local communities, and ensure that sea turtles will survive. The group is a member of the Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network (WIDECAST). NTG volunteers tag sea turtles and collect information about the nesting and movement of Nevis’ sea turtles. Additional information, such as levels of nest predation and poaching is collected. NTG also gives presentations about sea turtles at local schools and works to involve children in sea turtle related activities.
