Abstract

The rapid decline of marine turtle populations over the past century has set off an alarm of great concern. The Inter-American Convention for the Protection and Conservation of Sea Turtles (IAC) is an organization made up of thirteen member nations that are unified in an effort to promote marine turtle survival and population replenishment. The primary goal of this project was to provide a resource that would provide recommendations and guidelines about how to implement and manage a marine turtle conservation program for parties interested in marine turtle conservation on local and national levels. Both a concise brochure and an interactive webpage were designed by the group based on research and interviews conducted in San Jose, Costa Rica.
