Just north of the Kunene River, a group of sea turtles annually nest on Angolan beaches. These include the green, loggerhead and leatherback varieties. On the nesting beaches they are particularly vulnerable by local fishermen and tourists. In the interests of protecting this ecological wonder, cooperation between Namibia and Angola has become vital. To this end, Wilderness Safaris has begun a conservation initiative combining both countries with the aim of securing nesting beaches and the animals.
