Each year the program helps researchers study the migration patterns of endangered sea turtles that nest on Nevis’ beaches.
Nineteen hawksbill turtles have been released since the start of the program in 2006. The most recent hawksbills from Nevis were named Sylvia and Sundrop, and released in July 2016.

Three species of sea turtles nest on the shores of Nevis: the hawksbill, the leatherback and the green turtle. These turtles journey hundreds of miles each nesting season to return to the same place where they were hatched. Under the glow of the moonlight, they lay the eggs of what will be the next generation of sea turtles that will one day make the same journey. With as few as one in 1,000 baby sea turtles surviving to adulthood, sea turtle conservation and tracking is essential to protecting these animals.
