Satellite transmitter tagged on Marine Turtles!

For the conservation of marine turtles, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed among the states of Indian Ocean and South East Asia (IOSEA) region. The regional states can work together to conserve and replenish marine turtle populations.

The year 2006 has been declared as “Year of the Turtle (YoT)” for the IOSEA region. The initiative promotes collaborative and concerted actions to conserve and manage marine turtles as well as the habitats on which they depend. Pakistan is also a signatory to IOSEA MoU.

As a part of the YoT activities, WWF – Pakistan, in collaboration with the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi, U.A.E., and the Sindh Wildlife Department, recently installed transmitters on two marine turtles at Sandspit, Karachi coast.
