Thank you for visiting my blog! My name is Jacques-Olivier Laloë and I am currently an Associate Research Fellow at Deakin University, Australia. My main research interests are sea turtle ecology, climate change and conservation.
I started this blog in August 2014 when I traveled to the Cape Verde Islands to carry out field work for my PhD. Ever since, I have been writing about the latest news in the world of sea turtle biology and research. I hope you enjoy!

Hi Jacques-Olivier, congratulations for your blog is a great contribution on sea turtle conservation. i was searching about Turtles and tides and i stooped on your blog. Do you have any information on olive ridley ecology, population estimation and how to assess the status of sea turtle population?
Hi Paulo, glad you stumbled upon my blog. A good place to look for answers to your questions would be in James Spotila’s book “Sea Turtles: A Complete Guide to Their Biology, Behavior, and Conservation”. It is a great book and there is a very good chapter on the biology and ecology of olive ridleys. To understand how you can assess the status of sea turtle populations, I recommend the comprehensive “Assessment of Sea-Turtle Status and Trends: Integrating Demography and Abundance” published by The National Academies Press. Finally, a great place to find more information about sea turtles online is the Sea Turtle Conservancy’s website (www.conserveturtles.org). Hope this helps! J-O
Nice blog Jacques 🙂
So happy to see you are pursuing your passion. Interesting reads too on such fascinating creatures.
Hope to see you soon
