WWF observes nesting

Luke Rawalai
Saturday, May 10, 2014

ACCORDING to observations made by the WWF South Pacific, turtles continue to nest even after the nesting season ends.

Marine species co-ordinator Laitia Tamata said they based their conclusions on observations of reports received from turtle monitors in the field.

He said they continued to monitor the data and were trying to come up with the reasons this was occurring.

"We need consistency of data so such observations will take some time, maybe up to five years before we can definitively pinpoint the reasons for such turtle nesting behaviour," he said.

"This is why we appreciate the work our turtle monitors are carrying out in the field because they continue to collect this data, as well as engage communities in which they live with awareness about the turtle moratorium that prohibits the harvesting of sea turtles unless with a permit."
