vision and mission
The vision of the Barbados Sea Turtle Project (University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus) is to restore local marine turtle populations to levels at which they can fulfil their ecological roles while still providing opportunities for sustainable use by the people of Barbados, and to support similar efforts in other countries of the Caribbean.

Our mission is to recover marine turtle populations through the use of scientifically-sound conservation measures and monitoring programmes, and through the development and implementation of training, education and public awareness tools and activities that encourage the support and active participation of stakeholders.

The Barbados Sea Turtle Project emphasizes partnerships in achieving our goals. These partnerships are evident both at the national level (Government, non-governmental organizations and the tourism sector) and at the international level where the Project serves as the focal point for WIDECAST in Barbados, offering regional training workshops, maintaining a regional marine turtle tagging centre, and encouraging research and conservation in countries that share management responsibilities for our migratory sea turtle populations
