In June 1994, 19 members of the Marine Turtle Specialist Group from 15 nations and a representative of the IUCN Secretariat met in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, with two professional strategic planners to draft a comprehensive global strategy for the conservation of marine turtles. The resulting draft was sent to all members of the MTSG and to selected members of the SSC for review and comment. This document, A Global Strategy for the Conservation of Marine Turtles, is the product of that session and review. The Strategy is presented in nine parallel strategies: Research and Monitoring; Integrated Management for Sustainable Marine Turtle Populations; Building Capacity for Conservation, Research, and Management; Public Awareness, Information, and Education; Community Participation in Conservation; Regional and International Cooperation; Evaluation of the Status of Marine Turtles; Funding for Marine Turtle Conservation; and Operation of the Marine Turtle Specialist Group.
