Abstract

Until the early 1990s, information on sea turtle nesting in the Netherlands Antilles amounted to little more than anecdotal accounts and sea turtle nesting was considered to be nothing more than a rare accidental occurrence. However, several recent studies have found unprecedented levels of sea turt...
