Hatchling Season Volunteers in Sal Island, Cabo Verde 2017 - Cape Verde

During the hatching season, volunteers are responsible for the monitoring of Loggerheads nests in the hatchery and in the nesting beaches. Under the supervision of the coordinators, volunteers will take part in different activities:
