  • Why I like being a member of ICAPO: Collaboration and networking is key to successful conservation. The ICAPO network has made significant progress regarding the conservation of hawksbill turtles in the region and my participation in it will allow me to bring my country into the network and join efforts to recovery this endangered species. It is an honor for me to be part of a multidisciplinary team that integrates various social actors in the conservation of this species.
