Mission Statement

The collective mission of the network 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

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
populations. 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. 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.

WIDECAST-Costa Rica is a small NGO making great efforts to protect the sea turtles in the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica, with few funds and basic resources save hundreds of eggs and nesting females for future generations. This is a project for people to want make the difference, 100% hands on, with strong efforts to protect the beach and the nest hatchery.
