The Secretariat established by the Signatory States to service the Memorandum of Understanding is situated in Bangkok, Thailand, at the following address:

IOSEA Marine Turtle MoU Secretariat
c/o UNEP Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific
2nd Floor, United Nations Building, 
Rajdamnern Nok Avenue
Bangkok 10200, Thailand

Tel: +(662) 288 1471; Fax: +(662) 288 3041
E-mail: iosea(at)un.org

United Nations Building, Bangkok
As can be seen from the address, the Secretariat is co-located with the UNEP Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (UNEP/ROAP), which hosts many UNEP divisions working on a wide range of environmental issues.

Excellent conference facilities are available on-site through the principal United Nations agency in Bangkok – the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP).

Douglas Hykle, IOSEA Coordinator/Senior CMS AdvisorThe Secretariat is headed by Mr. Douglas Hykle, former Deputy Executive Secretary of the Convention on Migratory Species, based in Bonn, Germany. His current title is: Co-ordinator / Senior CMS Advisor. The latter designation reflects the fact that a portion of his time is spent advising on broader CMS issues, apart from marine turtles, of concern to the Asia region.

These have included implementation of the CMS Memorandum of Understanding concerning Conservation Measures for the Siberian Crane, which he helped to develop in the early 1990s, as well as its associated site network and UNEP/GEF wetlands project.  He was also involved in the establishment of the CMS office in Abu Dhabi, and the development of a regional agreement for the conservation of Dugongs modelled on the IOSEA agreement.

More recently, he has been involved in the drafting of a new Strategic Plan for the East Asia - Australasia Flyway Partnership, a wonderfully cooperative initiative that brings together diverse partners from Government, NGOs and the private sector with a common interest in concerving migratory birds

It's hoped that the Secretariat will be further strengthened through internships and other longer-term staff placements sponsored by interested Governments. If you think you might be able to assist in this regard, please contact the Co-ordinator.
