President of the International Sea Turtle Society, 2022-2023
Between 18th and 24th March, 2023, the 41st International Sea Turtle Symposium will be held in Cartagena, Colombia. This event will bring together more than 600 people from 70 countries, including technical experts and researchers, government and private environmental entities, research institutes, academics, students, and members of coastal communities, to exchange knowledge, share experiences, propose measures, and move towards a better future for the turtles and us. Colombia will host this face-to-face event that will be held for only the second time in a South American country. It will be a unique opportunity to catch up with colleagues and friends from all around the world after the COVID-19 pandemic. The venue is the Hilton Hotel, Cartagena de Indias, Colombia.
Under the theme ‘Vision 20/20: Bridging Communities and Technology for Marine Turtle Conservation’, a series of topics will be addressed ranging from science, medicine, education, public policies, and community-based conservation efforts, in order to protect these legendary creatures that do not recognise political borders and which, without a passport or luggage, freely roam the seas of this Blue Planet.
More information about the 41st Symposium will soon be available at the International Sea Turtle Society webpage. So, please keep tuned to be part of this Unforgettable Gathering!
