Description

NTG is dedicated to the development of a sea turtle conservation program for Nevis that involves local communities, and ensure that sea turtles will be there for the use of present and future generations. Concerned volunteers help monitoring the nesting beaches on Nevis, working at night on beaches around Nevis to 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 are collected during morning surveys. NTG also gives presentations about sea turtles at local schools and works to involve children in sea turtle related activities. Member of Widecast.
