This will allow us to monitor the temperatures of turtle nests over time and throughout the season.
PHOTOGRAMMETRY CAMERA SET-UP
This would allow us to measure the size of the turtle from the surface of the water, rather than rely on nesting turtles only for measurements. Therefore we could more accurately estimate growth rates and life stages.
To fly during surveys from the beach, in order to observe the number of turtles on a specific site, in addition to people in the water and the number of boats. This data will allow us to determine the effect of tourism on turtle behaviour.
This will allow us to monitor the dive profiles and behaviours of foraging turtles.
We are in great need of a reliable GPS Tracker to use during our snorkel surveys, this would allow us to pinpoint the location of our frequently sighted turtles, therefore we could create a distribution map for our sites. This will help provide evidence of frequent turtle feeding locations.
SECONDARY UNDERWATER CAMERA
This will allow us to conduct surveys at more than one site simultaneously
Currently, we are unable to tag our nesting turtles as we have not had access to the funds for training nor the equipment.Satellite tagging technology would allow us to accurately map the distribution and movement of our identified turtles.
STAFF RASH VESTS
We are in need of rash vests branded with our logo, so tourists can observe our work.
