The Ponta do Ouro Partial Marine Reserve is part of the Ponta do Ouro-Kosi Bay TFCA, Africa's first marine TFCA and part of the Lubombo TFCA.
Around 77% of the marine turtles monitored in Mozambique nest in the Marine Reserve. It is thus the most important leatherback and loggerhead turtle nesting ground along the Mozambican coast.
What makes the Marine Reserve's turtle monitoring programme all the more exciting, is that it links up with the turtle monitoring programme of iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a World Heritage Site, that is now in its 43rd season.
Good news for turtles!
