Endangered Caribbean Sea Turtles: An Educator’s Handbook

by Harold, Sera

Abstract (Summary)
This project was undertaken as a part of the mission of the Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network (WIDECAST), which is now housed at the Duke Nicholas School’s Marine Lab. The Handbook is inseparable from its context as a part of the work of this organization. WIDECAST is an international scientific network comprised of volunteer Country Coordinators (mainly sea turtle experts, natural resource professionals, and community-based conservationists), an international Board of Scientific Advisors, and Partner Organizations in more than 30 Caribbean States and territories. Each Coordinator works closely with a national coalition of stakeholders, including biologists, conservationists, resource managers, resource users, policy-makers, educators and others, to ensure that everyone has access to the dialogue, as well as to the unique products and services of the network.
