This project seeks to develop a more detailed understanding of the relative density of at-sea habitat use for the olive ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) turtle to allow for more effective marine spatial planning efforts in support of marine protected area design, fisheries management and petrochemical exploration activities. The project is funded by Tullow Oil, the Darwin Initiative and Busch Gardens Sea World Conservation Fund. more
This project is a collaborative effort between the Gabon National Parks Agency, CENAREST (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique et Technologique), the Gabon Sea Turtle Partnership, Fondation Liambissi, Ibonga, the Wildlife Conservation Society, WWF, Stanford University, University of California Santa Cruz, the Marine Conservation Institute and the Marine Turtle Research Group at the University of Exeter.
