The IOTN team welcomes all readers to the first issue of 2023. We bring to you a snapshot survey of stranded turtles on a beach adjacent at an important fishing port in Iran, a systematic review of methods to assess changes in sea turtle nesting phenology with climate change, and a photoessay about a new satellite telemetry study in Kuwait.

In a few months, the international sea turtle community will be meeting for the first time since before the COVID-19 pandemic. Cartagena, Colombia, is a long migration for researchers from the Indian Ocean region and Southeast Asia but we hope to see some of you at the regional meeting before the symposium starts. Safe travels!
