Sea turtles face a variety of dangers, both natural and man-made. Threats accumulate over long periods of time and can occur anywhere in a population’s range. Because sea turtles are highly migratory, localized declines often result from a combination of factors, both domestic and foreign.
The WIDECAST network, with local partners in more than 40 nations and territories, is dedicated to increasing the capacity of Caribbean organizations, institutions, and governments – at both national and regional levels – to reduce these threats and to promote the survival of endangered sea turtles.
