Socio-Economic and Cultural Implications of Marine Turtles Use and Conservation


For security reasons we had to close the previous website of the IOSEA Marine Turtle MOU sooner than planned. Content is still being transferred to this new website. We apologize for any inconvenience.


The following paper was prepared by the Secretariat in response to a need initially identified by the IOSEA Western Indian Ocean - Marine Turtle Task Force to compile information, in the form of a literature review, on social aspects of marine turtle conservation in the Western Indian Ocean.  The Secretariat circulated a working draft of the paper in February 2014, which has since been updated to incorporate feedback from a small number of reviewers.
