My estimate of 10,000 humans on Bioko now seems high (even to me :-). I think 1,000 is a more likely number. That would be 30 paleohumans per kilometer of beach, not 300. 

It is fascinating to read more about sea turtles. Neither Bioko Island nor sea turtles have been of interest to paleoanthropologists, naturally enough. 

I think that when paleohumans (Homo erectus, Denisovans, Neanderthals, Sapiens) left Bioko and no longer had access to easy sea turtle meat, life suddenly became much harder.
