Akazul: Community, conservation and ecology is a UK registered not for profit organization, working primarily with the coastal zone aspects of the conservation of olive ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) and leatherback (Dermochelys coriacea) sea turtles as well as monitoring the habitat of eastern Pacific green (Chelonia mydas) and hawksbill sea turtles in the small coastal community of La Barrona, Guatemala. Akazul has recently become a member of ICAPO and has been contributing information about turtles since March 2011. Although there has previously been a small quantity of data published on nesting and stranding occurrences of hawksbills in Guatemala (see Gaos et al. 2010;Higginson 1989) it is thought that there are more incidents than are currently reported.
