At Tiskita Jungle Lodge, olive ridley turtles have built from 70 to 400 nests per year during the 1996 to 2002 nesting seasons, a dozen nests were from Pacific greens, and three were hawksbills. Worldwide, the olive Ridley is the most abundant sea turtle, but like all sea turtles, their numbers are declining due to human causes. Part of the olive Ridley's diet consists of shrimp, and each year thousands are accidentally caught in the shrimp nets of trawlers and drown. Humans also dig up (poach) nests for the eggs, and on some beaches most of the nests are destroyed each year. In a small effort to help these turtles, the Tiskita Foundation began sea turtle conservation programs in 1995, and in 1996 initiated working with PRETOMA (Sea Turtle Restoration Program of Costa Rica). The conservation program includes identifying species, tallying nests, and relocating them to enclosures to prevent destruction from poachers or predatory animals. Poaching is a serious problem. Egg- theft is believed to have destroyed close to 100% of the turtle nests in years past on the beaches of Tiskita. Costa Rica awaits for you to share all the beauty of Tiskita Jungle Lodge and all its magic.
