Why I like being a member of ICAPO: Saving hawksbill turtles from extinction is a goal that only can be achieved through the collaboration of a diversity of actors, from United States to Peru; from an artisanal fisherman, to a mayor, to a biologist. The ICAPO network has proven enormously effective at galvanizing collaboration at all these levels, generating more than just a network, but rather a large family.
