Angola EN

Information on marine turtles in Angola is virtually nonexistent, and although in some areas they have been studied in the last decade this represents just 2% of all costal area.

Apparently, practically all coast seems to be appropriate to nesting and feeding of sea turtles.

Five species are reported in Angola, leatherback, olive ridley, green, loggerhead and hawksbill, meanwhile their distribution, population density and the importance of the area to the species, remains largely unknown.
