we are monitoring the behavior of sea turtles in our park

Our park plays an important role in the conservation of endangered sea turtles as the park provides protected nesting habitat. Sea turtles return to the same beach as they were born, indicating the importance of the protection of our sea inlets. 

We send out quarterly bulletins on our progress! Want to know more? Subscribe here:

what we do and how you can help!

Three species of sea turtles are known to lay eggs at in the park, these are the Hawksbill turtle, the Loggerhead turtle and the Green turtle. The Leatherback turtle, the largest of the sea turtles, is no longer nesting on Curacao. 

Carmabi researchers monitor nesting sea turtles activity in our park by regularly patrolling the pocket beaches throughout the season. The nesting season runs approximately from May to December. 

Monitoring protocol follows the regionally set guidelines from the Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network (WIDECAST).
