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.
