  • Why I like being a member of ICAPO: It is important to be part of an organization that shares your interest in protecting hawksbill turtles, particularly because this area, known as Costa Careyes (or hawksbill coast in English), hosts Through ICAPO I can get in touch with people who support our efforts, so our actions are not isolated. It also gives me the opportunity to share the data generated in this area and support projects that transcend physical boundaries.
