The dates have just been announced for the fourth meeting of all people, institutions & government representatives involved in sea turtle conservation in Cape Verde. The three day conference will be held in Mindelo from the 22nd to the 24th May. Key themes will include the formation of a legally recognised body which will be more effective in lobbying for turtle protection. The many conservation projects, big & small will present the results of their 2012 campaign. The conference is hosted by INDP (the Capeverdean fisheries research institute) & funded by the Marine Turtle Conservation Fund (an initiative of the US government).
