Moon Over Bioko; Sea Turtles of Bioko Island


Moon Over Bioko; Sea Turtles of Bioko Island


Deme, a 10 year old boy from the village of Ureca dreams of someday following in his father’s footsteps working as a member of the sea turtle census team collecting data and monitoring the nesting habits of four endangered species of sea turtles that nest on the black sand beaches of Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea, West Africa. His father promises Deme that if he studies his school lessons and does well, he will allow him to accompany him one night on a turtle census.  Impressed by Deme’s desire to learn, his father makes good on his promise. Moon Over Bioko follows Deme as he discovers on his journey from the classroom to the black sand beaches, the value of an education, and the importance of the preservation of not only the sea turtles of Bioko Island, but of all living things, through good conservation practices.
