Description

The Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network (WIDECAST) is a Regional Activity Network of the UNEP Caribbean Environment Programme. WIDECAST is committed to building a regional capacity to ensure the recovery and sustainable management of depleted sea turtle populations. The network embraces sea turtle research and conservation projects in more than 40 nations. Each project is locally managed by an incredibly dedicated staff – including biologists, students, interns and volunteers all working together to conserve sea turtles, protect habitat, and involve coastal communities. Scientists, conservationists, natural resource managers, educators, policymakers, and community leaders all participate in WIDECAST as volunteers – and have done so for more than 30 years!
