ASEAN sea turtle conservation and management programme and collaboration with SEAFDEC
The main objective of the paper was to inform the ASEAN Regional Workshop on the existence of an ASEAN regional cooperation programme on sea turtle conservation and protection, forged through a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the ASEAN Ministers on Agriculture and Forestry (AMAF) in Bangkok on 12 September 1997. The paper also informed that ASEAN had recently forged a collaborative effort with the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) on sea turtle conservation and management in South East Asian Countries, through a project aimed at coordinating and compiling information on the status of research, conservation and management activities on sea turtles in ASEAN/SEAFDEC member countries, as well as establishing a mechanism for regional collaboration research on sea turtle conservation and management.
