The Marine Turtle IMapS is being developed by the United Nations Environment Programme - World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC), on behalf of the Convention on Migratory Species (UNEP/CMS). The system is global in scope, while being developed on a regional basis, and is concerned with all species of marine turtles.
