At present, we have two teams rotating on Ilha Do Fogo. They are responsible for the maintenance of the runway and also keep the beach and reef free of plastic. These individuals have had no training (yet) as resources are limited.
This project will identify individuals from the area who show an aptitude for turtle and marine protection. These individuals will then be sent to Machangulo Private Game Reserve where they will do internships with the Maputo Elephant Reserves and also receive training in turtle tagging and data recording with Centro Terra Viva.
Profiles will be posted online and donors will be able to sponsor individuals of their choice and follow their progress on the website.
