We are pleased to share four new Regional Reports completed by MTSG members in 2019. This marks the second round of the MTSG’s Regional Reporting initiative, which aims to aims to harness the collective power of our global expert members to compile and summarize the most relevant data for conservation of sea turtles in each of the 10 MTSG regions and their respective marine turtle Regional Management Units (RMUs)See the reports from the first round (2018) here.

Two of the 2019 reports represent updates since 2018 (South-West Atlantic and Middle-East and South Asia), and the other two are entirely new (East Asia and East Pacific Ocean). The 2019 Regional Reports are:

Between 2018 and 2019 combined, MTSG Regional Reports have now been completed for six of the MTSG’s ten regions, and new and updated reports are already under preparation for 2020. We are grateful to the dozens of MTSG members and regional vice chairs who contributed to this initiative in 2019 and look forward to adding more regions and more countries in the year(s) ahead.
