Why I like being a member of ICAPO: Because I am passionate about sea turtles and I love being part of a conservation project in which so many people come together from different countries and cultures, working side by side for a common goal, the conservation of sea turtles. Working with the hawksbill turtle in particular requires, in my view, a greater effort and dedication, as these quelonias have biological, ecological and behavioral characteristics that make communication and cooperation, both nationally and internationally, indispensable. I believe we are beginning to see the fruits of this labor!
