Description

Tens of dead turtles wash up on shore every year -- some natural mx, some mx due to artisinal fisheries that may not target marine turtles but do harvest the meat opportunistically, and some mx due to illegal offshore trawlers who do not harvest the meat but cut off a flipper (or so) to free it from the net and toss it back to the ocean. This turtle was dead too long to make a guess at what caused its death. The WCS project onsite has a catch and release program, exchanging net materials for release of live turtles, with artisinal fishermen that seems successful. The program is modeled off a larger scale program run by the NGO, Renatura, who work on beaches south of the park: http://www.renatura.org/

Description

Male hanging from his display perch on lek, flapping wings, and calling during peak mating season July 1971. Male is performing "staccato buzz", a rapid modulation of honking call performed to females when they hover near the male. Female can barely be seen on right of photo hovering to this male. Females visit multiple males (indicated by sequence of staccato buzzes along lek) and then select one for mating. Female ends copulation with loud squeals so matings are easily counted.
