We've started creating our website but below for now is a little about us.

WASTCON - the West African Sea Turtle Conservation Network, was founded in 2020 to promote sea turtle conservation throughout the gulf of Guinea.


The network comprises State Authorities, NGOs and CSOs who are involved in important conservation programs and initiatives whether at national, regional or local level.


We are currently in the process of gathering material for our upcoming website.


In the meantime you can follow the activities of some of our network members on our social media:
