Sea turtles constitute one of the most endangered group of reptiles. While some populations are showing promising signs of recovery after the implementation of conservation measures, others show continuing declines. Our work is conducted in West and Central Africa (Guinea-Bissau and S. Tomé and Príncipe), where we are studying the nesting and foraging populations of four sea turtle species. We focus on the migration patterns, population connectedness, and the ability to adapt to climate change, hoping to contribute to a more effective conservation of these charismatic reptiles.
