  • Name: Andy Bystrom
  • Organization: Programa Restauración de Tortugas Marinas (PRETOMA)
  • Country: Costa Rica
  • Occupation: Fisheries Biologist, Environmental Consultant
  • Why I like being a member of ICAPO: Being a part of the ICAPO network allows me to not only connect with colleagues working in similar themes and concepts throughout the region, but it’s also a great research tool. The more we learn about the marine environment the more we understand how interconnected it is. In this regard, our research and efforts to protect its critically endangered species should also be interconnected. This is the basis for my involvement with ICAPO and my continued dedication towards its objectives.
