lamaveprojectToday we are at the Sulu-Suluwesi Seascape Sea-Turtle Workshop to discuss the future of the #conservation of sea turtles in the #Philippines.
The Philippines is home to five out of seven of the world's #turtle species: Green, Hawksbill, Leatherback, Loggerhead and Olive Ridley.
All are listed on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species as either vulnerable, endangered or critically endangered.
Turtles, or in filipino pawikan, are essential to a healthy marine ecosystem. Gatherings like this are vital so we can find ways of working together across the country to safe guard these species.
