John and Gabriel Return from Tobago

We missed our Herpetologist friends John and Gabe who were exploring off Trinidad’s North Coast in Tobago for a week, looking for lizards and snakes. Tobago is a much smaller isle than Trinidad, only 300 square kilo though still rich in flora and fauna with many endemic species! The pair stayed with the Glasgow Exploration Society Tobago Team who are monitoring Hawksbill and Leatherback Turtles, based in Charrlotteville and travelling round to many beaches of the island. Unfortunately it has been reported that not many turtles have been sighted. We wonder if this is due to the increased poaching in the area or perhaps habitat destruction to the nearby coral reefs.

Previous Expedition Member and Curator of the UWI Zoology Museum, Mike Rutherford joined the adventure, alongside Stevland Charles of the Field Naturalist Club.
