Mission Statement

As a network of international individuals and organizations, we promote the recovery of hawksbill turtles in the eastern Pacific by sharing information, raising awareness, forming alliances, conducting research and initiating conservation.

Description

The Eastern Pacific Hawksbill Initiative (ICAPO) was formally established in July 2008 to promote recovery of hawksbill turtles in the eastern Pacific. As a US 501(c)3 non-profit project administered through The Ocean Foundation, we consist of more than 50 individuals and organizations, experts in the field of hawksbill and sea turtle conservation, hailing from every country in the eastern Pacific from the US to Peru. We fulfill our mission to protect and recover hawksbills in the eastern Pacific by sharing information, raising awareness, formaing alliances, conducting research and initiating conservation. This is achieved through close collaborations with coastal community members, scientists and policy makers throughout the region. ICAPO has established numerous conservation projects, consolidated an important body of scientific literature, and brought hawksbill turtles to the forefront of the marine conservation agenda in the eastern Pacific.
