The continued survival of marine turtles is indicative of our willingness to engage and mobilise as a modern world toward sustainable development. The scale of marine turtle conservation in the Asia Pacific region is a challenge for governments, local communities, non-government organisations and scientists alike. WWF cannot do this alone.
WE ASK YOU TO GET INVOLVED
Strong partnerships are, and will continue to be essential to achieving shared goals. WWF has partnerships with many key government agencies, local partners, international NGOs and local communities. WWF will be seeking to strengthen these and initiate new relationships and secure significant resources, in order to achieve an ambitious and rewarding marine turtle conservation programme for the benefit of communities and marine turtles globally.
The actions we take today will determine whether or not marine turtles will survive into the next century. Those same actions will also determine whether or not local communities who live with turtles will succeed in building secure livelihoods based on sustainable marine management.
