I investigated the effect of predators on hawksbill reproduction and evaluated the effectiveness of protecting nests using plastic net at a beach in Qatar along the Arabian Gulf. Predators such as feral cats and the fox, Vulpes rueppelli, were present at very high densities. Nests not protected by plastic net were 100% depredated to some extent; > 80% were completely destroyed.
