Las Cuevas is also a turtle nesting beach from March through August.
Trinidad's population of nesting female Leatherback turtles is one of the three largest in the world and a few beaches of the north coast including Las Cuevas are the best managed and/or monitored on the island. Five of the seven species of sea turtles found in the world, feed in waters around Trinidad and Tobago and/or return to its shores to lay eggs.
