Results

In 2015, Pacsafe funded an outreach program to recruit and train more than 50 international boaters and fishermen to assist in data collection on sea turtle migration in NW mexico, including age, depth of habitats, abundance, routes and substrate type. The data collected was essential in planning priority locations for future marine reserves in the area.
