Record Breaking Turtles!

We are happy to report that our hawksbill turtles broke the record for the most nests laid in a single season in the last 16 years of the project! The previous record from 2014 of 475 nests was topped on September 24th, and as of October 6th we already have 506 nests! This is a significant increase since the first year of the project in 2000 where we recorded 154 nests.

Hatchlings, hatchlings, hatchlings!

We have recently seen the start of the 2015 hawksbill hatchout season in the Pearl Cays! That means hundreds of little hatchlings have been working hard to climb out of their nests and start their long journey to the great big sea! We have so far excavated over 20 nests, with nest success rates between 46-93%.

WCS in the classroom leading sea turtle conservation education

WCS has been active in the classroom! The Hawksbill Project Coordinator Laura Irvine and Hawksbill Project Field Supervisor William McCoy, in cooperation with Geri Mezzoni and Ryan Mintz from Peace Corps Nicaragua, visited classrooms of grades 3-9 at Bula Lightburn School Primary School (Pearl Lagoon), Pearl Lagoon Academy of Excellence, and Andreas Carlos Primary School (Haulover), in order to talk to children about the importance of sea turtle conservation.
