Sea Turtle Conservancy is working to protect and restore the once globally significant hawksbill sea turtle nesting population at Chiriquí and Soropta Beaches in Panama. The programs consist of intensive monitoring of hawksbill and leatherback sea turtle nesting activity, protection of nesting females and their nests, and public education in the region and will build upon an ongoing research project carried out since 1989 by Drs. Anne and Peter Meylan.
