|Issue Date:||2013||Abstract:||Sea turtles exhibit a strong natal homing associated with a high nesting site philopatry. Mark-recapture and genetic studies confirm these patterns suggesting differences among and within species. In the present study, we have analysed the degree of nest site fidelity of a loggerhead population nesting on the islands of Cape Verde and have evaluated the existence of intrapopulational variability in this trait. The loggerhead is the only sea turtle species that nests in Cape Verde, and 15,000–25,000 nests per season have been estimated for the whole archipelago.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/17524||Source:||30th Annual Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation, Goa, India, 2010.
