The National Commission of Protected Natural Areas (CONANP) is responsible for the good management and conservation of protected areas in Mexico, and of priority species, among others, sea turtles, dictating public management policies, integrating local communities to conservation programs and carrying out actions to monitor populations in both areas with protection status and in priority regions for conservation (areas that due to their importance are conserved but do not have protection status). The National Program for the Conservation of Sea Turtles (PNCTM) is developed from the Directorate of Monitoring Strategies and Conservation Projects (DESPC) of the General Directorate of Regional Operation (DGOR), with 55 years of development in Mexico carrying out conservation actions (direct and indirect) for all species of sea turtles present in Mexico.
