Sadly, this particular turtle is classed as an endangered species, with very few nesting sites remaining around the world. Environmental and social studies conducted for the Arenque field, off the coast of Tamaulipas in north-east Mexico, identified both the presence and the importance of the Lora turtle, and highlighted the fact that their endangered status had actually become worse over time. In line with our commitments to manage the impact that our business has on local communities and the environment, we entered into a partnership with PEMEX, the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas, and other public and academic institutions to create a scheme dedicated to protecting the turtles. The money has paid for eight quad vehicles to monitor nesting sites, specialist satellite equipment to study the behaviour of turtles and scholarships for local university students to research the ecology of the species.

Hawksbill Turtle Conservation Case Study | The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund
The Comoros islands Grande Comore, Anjouan and Moheli are home to a number of ecologically important and vulnerable coastal habitats including coral reefs, mangrove forests and seagrass beds which support high marine biodiversity. These species are Endangered and Critically Endangered, respectively. The hunting and trade of marine turtles is prohibited by Comorian law, but turtles are still hunted for their meat. A National Turtle Conservation Action Plan has been completed but not fully implemented apart from through a few community-based projects. Five species of marine turtles frequent the coast of Madagascar, namely the Green Chelonia mydas , Hawksbill Eretmochelys imbricata , Loggerhead Caretta caretta , Olive Ridley Lepidochelys olivacea , and to a lesser extent the Leatherback Dermochelys coriacea turtle. With the exception of leatherback turtles, all of these species nest on Malagasy beaches. Suitable foraging habitats shallow coral reefs and seagrass beds have been identified in north-west Madagascar, Nosy Iranja, Radama Islands and Nosy Hara Archipelago.
