This presentation will discuss the many threats facing sea turtles and how these threats are being addressed by government agencies, scientists, NGOs, and civil society. Veronica Caceres Chamorro, Executive Secretary of the Inter-American Convention for the Protection and Conservation of Sea Turtles and Chesapeake Biological Laboratory alumna (M.S. 2001) will also highlight how the IAC is coordinating the international collaboration needed to protect sea turtles.
