Securing in-situ nesting and safe migratory routes for sea turtles in the Bay of Bengal countries.

 

The Bay of Bengal Sea Turtle Program (BoB Turtle) is a partnership-based initiative initiated in October 2015. BoB Turtle is designed and facilitated by Save Our Sea (SOS) to secure safe migratory routes and nesting sites for sea turtles in the Bay of Bengal countries by promoting TEDs and in situ nest protection.

 

Local communities, fishing cooperatives, tourism businesses are collaborating with conservationists in this voluntary program.
