On behalf of the International Sea Turtle Society, we extend a very warm welcome and invite to the 42nd International Sea Turtle Symposium (ISTS42), a six-day global event that will be hosted in Pattaya, Thailand between the 24th and 29th March 2024.

ISTS42 will bring together a community of sea turtle biologists, environmental practitioners, conservationists, Indigenous groups, researchers, academics, and advocates from up to 60 countries to share knowledge, build capacity, network and collaborate and ultimately, to promote the protection and conservation of sea turtles.

The theme of ISTS42 is "All In, All Together – Inspiring the Next Generations of Global Sea Turtle Conservationists".
