To mark this year’s World Animal Day on October 4, CTC is taking part in raising the awareness about the importance of animal protection! World Animal Day is celebrated across the globe with the mission to raise the status of animals in order to improve welfare standards. For this year’s celebration, CTC will be highlighting the importance of protecting sea turtles in the Coral Triangle, as they are classified as threatened, endangered, or critically endangered, due largely to human impact in the form of hunting, bycatch in fishing nets, pollution and climate change.

This year, CTC became one of the implementing partners of the second phase of the Arafura & Timor Seas Ecosystem Action Program (ATSEA-2), a regional partnership that aims to address the most important transboundary marine issues facing the region.

CTC, in collaboration with a team of experts, will provide technical support to the ATSEA-2 project to facilitate the development of a marine protected area network design and sea turtle action plan to protect priority coastal and marine habitats and conserve protected species.
