Mission Statement


The collective vision of the Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network (WIDECAST) is to realize a future where all inhabitants of the Wider Caribbean Region, human and sea turtle alike, can live together in balance; where healthy populations of sea turtles fulfill their ecological roles and economic potential; and critical natural habitats are sustainably managed.

Description


The Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network (WIDECAST) is an international scientific network comprised of volunteer Country Coordinators (mainly sea turtle experts, natural resource professionals, and community-based conservationists), an international Board of Scientific Advisors, and Partner Organizations in more than 40 Caribbean nations and territories. The network has been closely affiliated with the UNEP Caribbean Environment Programme since its inception. WIDECAST is rooted in the belief that conservation must be nurtured from within, it cannot be commanded from outside. Each Country Coordinator works closely with a national coalition of stakeholders, including biologists, conservationists, resource managers, resource users, policy-makers, educators and others, to ensure that everyone has access to the dialogue, as well as to the unique products and services of the network.
