The Antigua and Barbuda Department of Environment is hosting a series of conservation seminars.
Coming up on Thursday February 22, 2018, Sara Ramirez of the St. Kitts Sea Turtle Monitoring Network will be giving a talk titled Tourism and Conservation: Using Voluntary Certification to foster business-driven sea turtle stewardship in St. Kitts and Nevis. Ms. Ramirez will discuss how tourism operators and turtle conservationists can partner for mutual benefit. One way the St. Kitts Sea Turtle Monitoring Network has promoted this kind of partnership is through the “Certified Turtle Approved” programme, a voluntary certification scheme developed for businesses interested in conserving the sea turtle population of St. Kitts and Nevis.
The seminar will begin at 6pm on February 22, 2018 at the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda. The event is free and open to the public.
