WWF aims now to ensure the long-term protection of this beach and its marine turtles by strengthening the capacity of the community to run the conservation program, consolidating the non-consumptive values of marine turtles (e.g. as tourist attractions and legacy for the next generation) to prevent poaching, linking marine turtle conservation to livelihood improvement, and mitigating the impacts of climate change on nesting conditions.
