This is the distribution of studied nests during 2006 in our two main study areas. 



In Jaragua National Park, Pedernales Province, the most important beaches are located to the west and east of the Barahona Peninsula.  Among these, Bahía de las Aguilas and San Luis-Mosquea are the main ones.




In del Este National Park, we have been working in Saona Island. There, the most important beaches for marine turtle nesting are those on the southern coast, from El Toro/ Subidero de los Careyes to   Faro-Punta Cana.
