Conservationists Protecting Sea Turtles In Solomon Islands

Conservationists Protecting Sea Turtles

There are two species of sea turtles that are found on the island. One is hawksbill turtle, and the other one is green turtle. Conservationists have started monitoring in 1992, since then until now it is the longest single species of monitoring that ever done in the South Pacific.

The conservation officers go out at night and they monitor the turtles that come in to lay their eggs. Because turtles only come in to lay their eggs at night. They are currently having people that are trained so that they become conservation officers who are well equipped.
