The paper refers that the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on ASEAN Sea Turtle Conservation and Protection by the ASEAN Ministers on Agriculture and Forestry in September 1997 indirectly provided the platform for the formation of a regional sea turtle researcher network. It was proposed that this network be named 'SEAFDEC-ASEAN Marine Turtle Conservation Network (SAMTCN)', and that the network should comprise turtle experts and non-experts alike. SAMTCN is expected to have a large group of followers.
