Saving Our Turtles

For anyone interested in endangered animals I found a great site about a program that tags and tracks turtles in the Dominican republic

Last year we had a couple of turtles that came ashore to lay their eggs in the centre of the main beach in Cabarete - people were not sure who to contact and a make-shift fence was put up around them to protect them from people disco dancing on the beach- most hatched safely and made their way to a less noisy place lol

Having found this site we now have contacts and know who to inform if it happens again

The site shows the names profile and tracks of various tagged turtles and has lots of other information
