Why I like being a member of ICAPO: ICAPO membership has allowed me to obtain and share information on various sea turtle topics, including conservation issues, articles and more. Because ICAPO is a strong network and is composed of numerous experts, I have been able to easily and rapidly consult on various research questions. This has led to the resolution of various research questions revolving around methodologies and has led to discussion about hawksbill conservation issues at a regional level, with the result often being the establishment of concrete actions for recovery among diverse stakeholders. Because I belong to this network I have opened doors to new opportunities for research and focused specializations.
