sea turtle monitoring

Our sea turtle monitoring program along Malongo beach helps protect the endangered Lepidochelys Olivacea, Chelonia Mydas and Dermochelys Coriacea species by preventing poachers and tides from disrupting the turtles’ habitat.

The conservation program, which is based on Chevron’s Biodiversity Action Plan, began in 2002 and covers six kilometers of the Cabinda province coastline within the boundaries of our Malongo operations base.

The breeding season occurs between September and mid-March. During this time, nests are moved to designated, safe nesting areas at the far end of Malongo beach where they are sheltered from high tides, overgrown vegetation, soil erosion and construction projects.

During the last 15 years, over 165,000 hatchlings have crawled to sea from over 2,800 preserved nests in the Malongo beach conservation area.

Chevron’s wildlife protection program has contributed to the continuous improvement of our environmental stewardship. Over the years, it has increased local awareness and cooperation, contributing to Angola’s wildlife conservation efforts.
