Enhancing the protection and conservation of marine turtle nesting sites in the Mediterranean 2017-2022_Final Evaluation

Published in News

13 Mediterranean countries, 10 direct partners and numerous local partners, support from local communities, volunteers, scientists, conservationists and MPA managers. This is in a short glance, the MAVA Funded project “Conservation of Marine Turtles in the Mediterranean Region” (2017-2022).

This five year project had as an ultimate goal:

→ “By 2022, at least 50% of the nests on monitored beaches produced successful hatchlings, indicating favourable nesting conditions.”

To achieve this goal the partnership worked on a multi-level, decentralised approach and particularly: field monitoring and protection of nests across the Mediterranean, satellite tracking of loggerhead (Caretta caretta) and green turtles, sporadic nesting monitoring, lobbying policy makers and establishing new National Action Plans for the conservation of sea turtles, raising awareness on sea turtle conservation and engaging local communities and the young generation.

The journey of a Caretta caretta turtle across the Mediterranean reminds us that sea turtles know no borders. If we want to efficiently protect the species we must collaborate. NGOs, environmental conventions, scientists ,conservationists and local communities across different Mediterranean countries must join their forces forces for sea turtle conservation. 

This is what we do, for the last four years, in the framework of this project. We are a truly Pan-Mediterranean alliance, with our hearts devoted to sea turtles.
