The objective of this project is to track olive ridley turtles attempting to nest on Kwanda Island, Soyo Angola. The primary aim of the poject is to obtain information on internesting sites.
Kwanda Island is the site of the Angola LNG development that will treat gas from offshore wells which is currently being flared. Kwanda Island is located inside the mouth of the Congo River in northern Angola.
