Abstract

The purpose of this initial phase was to expand our previous work on marine turtles on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua. This was done through the establishment of a collaborative program with the Miskitu Indians to reduce the uncontrolled take of marine turtles in this region. We initiated activities for a multi-year program that will include research, training, and educational activities involving three Miskitu Indian Communities located in the Indigenous Communities and Miskito Cays Biosphere Reserve (ICMCBR).
