The Fish and Wildlife Service of the United States plays a strategic role in the conservation of the loggerhead turtle populations that KAI studies in the Mediterranean. These turtles, originating from the nesting grounds of the western North Atlantic are currently threatened during parts of their lifecycle in the open sea, and there conservation therefore requires international concerted action. The USFWS collaborates with KAI Marine Services since 2012 on a programme addressing the issue of sea turtle bycatch mitigation in the Spanish long distance fisheries.


Alnitak is a Spanish registered nonprofit organization that has specialized since 1990 in the conservation of marine biodiversity mainly through the design of protected areas and the development of technological measures to better study and protect highly mobile marine species as cetaceans, seabirds and turtles.
