This paper looks at the inter-American convention for the protection and conservation of sea turtles. The paper begins by looking at the parlous status of the sea turtle in recent years and focusing upon its situation in the United States and along parts of South America. The paper also reviews the IAC treaty which came into force in 2001 and which has been both praised and denounced by observers.
From the Paper:"The conservation of living species is integral to humanity's own long-term vitality. That being said, the recent Inter-American Convention for the Protection and Conservation of Sea Turtles is, despite some strong points, an ultimately redundant and inefficient treaty that has not - and will not - change the parlous status of Sea Turtles in any appreciable way. The following paper will explain why this is so by first examining the recent history of the languishing Sea Turtle species. From there, the paper will closely review the offending treaty and offer an assessment of why it has not worked - and will not work - for Sea Turtles. Finally, the paper will offer some recommendations for making the treaty more efficacious as well as other measures must be taken if disaster is to be averted. "
