Abstract or Summary
  • At the May 19, 1982 meeting of the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Program, Kenya President Daniel Arap Moi summarized a growing international feeling that there is a need for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to get more involved in international conservation efforts with the following statement: "The issue before us today is not that of human well-being, but of human survival,... havoc has been spread across the whole spectrum of the natural environment. There is no doubt whatsoever that continuation of the present trends will lead to total collapse... The key factor in human salvation now can only be political will.–Global efforts must be fully mobilized to confront the possibility of total biological disaster. A whole new concept of obligation and duty needs to be blueprinted on a international scale. It is also important to increase public and political awareness of the importance of the environment through information, education and training. Responsible individual behavior and involvement are essential in furthering the cause of the environment. Non-governmental organizations have a particularly important and often inspirational role to play in this sphere." The Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Recovery Team and Conservation Network (WIDECAST) is one organization attempting to meet this need. WIDECAST personnel from throughout the Wider Caribbean 1 are preparing sea turtle recovery plans for 39 government regions that will eventually become official policy in the region. WIDECAST is unique in that it is a totally volunteer international effort, and could serve as a model for future efforts in other parts of the world. This report is devided into three sections, the first of which describes WIDECAST, its origin, history, goals, how it functions and its future. Section two is an account of my internship. Section three is an evaluation of WIDECAST and the internship experience.
