Abstract

In the context of declining global hawksbill sea turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) populations, the wider Caribbean region is of global conservation importance. This study compiles and presents previously unpublished sea turtle nesting-activity data for North East Tobago (11°19′13.53″N, −060°33′1.57″E) and reports the results of the first comprehensive survey of sea turtle nesting beaches at this southern Caribbean site. The results of this study quantify a previously undocumented, regionally important rookery for the globally critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle, consisting of untagged reproductive females.
