We are Laúd OPO

A regional team working to recover leatherback turtles in the East Pacific.

The Laúd OPO network consists of researchers, managers, students, field biologists, and many others from Chile to the U.S.A., who are working together to recover critically endangered leatherback turtles in the East Pacific Ocean. At local- and regional-scales, we are implementing the East Pacific Leatherback Action Plan, which provides a 10-year investment strategy to stabilize the population trend in the next 10 years, and demonstrate an increasing population trend 20-30 years from now.

THE NETWORK

The Laúd OPO Network was established in 2015, but has roots back to 2012 when more than thirty regional and international leatherback sea turtle biologists, researchers, NGOs, and experts came together to develop a plan to stabilize and recover East Pacific leatherback turtle populations within ten years. Today, the Network includes over 60 members.

THE ACTION PLAN

In 2012, more than thirty regional and international experts came together to develop a plan to stabilize and recover East Pacific leatherback turtle populations within ten years. The plan establishes realistic but ambitious population goals, defines key activities to address major threats to East Pacific leatherbacks, and outlines specific actions, metrics, timelines and financial needs to ensure success.
