Abstract

Bioko Island, part of Equatorial Guinea, has been classified as a critically important nesting site for sea turtles in the Gulf of Guinea. However, construction of a road through a previously undeveloped scientific reserve is set to dramatically alter human interactions with nesting turtle populations. This article reports on the current status of sea turtle conservation and research on Bioko Island as well as recent economic considerations that affect local turtle conservation and use.
