The recommendations from the First Workshop on Marine Turtle Research and Conservation, held in January 1996, established the needs for the compilation of turtle statistics for the region and initiated as well as coordinated the turtle tagging programmes for the region. The Marine Fishery Resources Development and Management Department (MFRDMD) had thus proposed two regional projects under the 3-year programme beginning in 1998 and the projects were the Regional Marine Turtle Tagging and the Regional Marine Turtle Statistics in Southeast Asia. The schedules of activities, expected outputs and forms prepared using standard format were provided with the paper.
