The coast by the executive team and locals were monitored.Examining the Sistan and Baluchistan province, about 300 km off the coast of northern makoran Sea indicates the existence of 13 important site sea turtle nesting area. A species that lay the egg during this project was green sea turtle(Chelonia mydas). The results of this study shows that the nest site selection success were 44.3%,63%,81.4% and 52.6% observed in Tang, Ramin, Lipar and Kacho, respectively. The results represent that highest nest site selection success was in Ramin. Results from the coast of the province of Sistan and Balochistan shows different morphology. The results of this study indicate that the maximum number of green turtle eggs (C.mydas) were observed in Ramin. The results show that the green sea turtle (C.mydas) habitats on the coast of Sistan and Baluchestan province are diverse and can be classified as sensitive areas of the coast, which is necessary for the implementation of conservation plans.
