20th issue of Torti d’Mer published today

The 20th issue of Torti d’Mer, the MCSS turtle newsletter, was published today. This quarterly newsletter was first produced in March 2004 under the MCSS Turtle Fund project. In June 2008, it was recognised on a national level when it was given an International Standard Serial Number (ISSN), listing Elke Talma (MCSS Research Officer and main author) and Dr. David Rowat (MCSS Chairman and part-time co-author) as the official editors/publishers of Torti d’Mer.

The newsletter is available to donors, forms part of the MCSS Turtle adoption kit and over the years has even become an educational resource for school kids through the National Library and Wildlife Clubs of Seychelles.

We hope that in the last 5 years, our newsletter, has fulfilled its role as an educative and public information document, as well as provided a forum for stakeholders to discuss issues of concern and provided commentary and opinions on developments related to turtle conservation in Seychelles.

Here’s to another 20 issues!

NOTE - If you would like to receive a copy of Torti d’Mer, please visit our web site and adopt a turtle!
