The number of turtles nesting along the coast of Angola is declining especially the giant leatherback turtle. Headed up by Biologist Michel Morais and a team of biology students from Agostinho Neto University, this project has been researching nesting activities of turtles on a beach south of Luanda since 2002, right after the war. Previous records of turtle research in the country date back to 1980. Come and join the University’s research team Thursday evening and learn all about Angola’s turtles! The presentation will be in English.

Available now for the first time, the students will be selling high quality T-shirts with the turtle project logo before the presentation.
