Introduction

This project is part of a broad marine turtle research and conservation initiative in Vietnam undertaken by WWF Greater Mekong - Vietnam marine programme in partnership with IUCN Vietnam, TRAFFIC Indochina and the Ministry of Fisheries, and with full cooperation from Con Dao National Park. Funding for this project was provided by the Danish Embassy in Vietnam (DANIDA).

The broader project also includes components which address capacity-building for management and research, evaluation of MPA effectiveness with regard to marine turtles, and bycatch mitigation. This project will also be linked to a new comprehensive marine and coastal planning initiative at Con Dao, under UNDP and supported by GEF-DANIDA, with technical services provided by WWF.

As well, an educational programme will be initiated in Con Dao with CDNP, with a schools programme including Turtle Naming and Tracking Contest.
