Montserrat is an important nesting site for marine turtles in the Eastern Caribbean and, along with our partners, we’re helping to recover and manage these populations.

Using science and community for conservation

Working with local Montserratians, we’re using a scientific evidence base and our tried-and-tested Community Voice Method to engage the island’s community on their attitudes and views towards turtles and their conservation.

We’re also working to create a Marine Turtle Species Action Plan to safeguard Montserrat’s turtle populations for years to come.
