We need your turtle pictures!

MCSS has recently produced a poster to encourage public participation in the Turtle photo-ID programme which is being managed by the Kelonia Marine Turtle Observatory.

The MCSS poster will be distributed to Dive Centres and Tour Operators, as well as Hotels and Resorts in the Seychelles which host nesting turtle populations.

This will go a long way to help expand the Indian Ocean database which currently has turtle images from the following islands: Reunion, Mayotte, Comoros, Madagascar, Europa, Tromelin, Glorieuse Juan da Nova and some islands in Seychelles.

If you have photos you would like to contribute please contact us.
