Organization Description: 

WIDECAST, an expert network of biologists, managers, community
leaders and educators in more than 40 nations and territories, is
committed to an integrated, regional capacity that ensures the
recovery and sustainable management of depleted sea turtle
We ask ourselves: What would a sustainably managed sea turtle
population look like? What would it look like to a government? To a
fisher, a coastal community, a child? To a hotelier, a dive operator, a
tourist? What would it look like to a reef, a seagrass bed, a sandy
beach? Each of these entities, and many others, relies upon and/or
benefits from the sea turtle population in measurable ways.
Borrowing the parlance of sustainable development, a sustainably
managed sea turtle population might be defined as one that meets
the needs ? ecological, economic, socio-cultural, political, aesthetic,
spiritual ? of the present without compromising the ability of the
population to fulfill these roles in the future. To this end, WIDECAST
seeks to bring the best available science to legislation and policy; to
education, training and outreach; to conservation and advocacy; and
to in situ research and population monitoring.
If policies aimed at sustainability are our goal, what do such policies
look like? What role can an individual (a community, a nation) play?
This conservation program is designed to empower you to make
more informed choices, choices rooted in the belief that the decisions
we make today will create the choices (and opportunities) of
tomorrow, just as the decisions of generations past have painted the
landscape that we see today.
