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 This study compiles and presents previously unpublished sea turtle nesting-activity data for North East Tobago (11°19′13.53″N, −060°33′1.57″E) and reports the results of the first comprehensive survey of sea turtle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.
