A wide variety of materials have been produced to make it easy for volunteers to participate and contribute meaningful data on sea turtles in Belize. These materials include posters, stickers, calendars, fact sheets, and messages aired on radio and in a training DVD.
Many of the programs coordinated under the Turtle Watch Program - Adopt A Beach, Adopt A Reef, Sea Turtle Census, In-water Observations, Nesting Beach Observations, Training Workshops - include materials that help educate and raise awareness of the need to sea turtles conservation.
The four posters produced educate on common sea turtle species, life cycles, stranded sea turtles and the announcement of the annual sea turtle census.
The Belize Turtle Watch Program is also on Facebook and we share current events here and on our Blog.
