This is an account, from the inside, of how indigenous action is being taken to conserve the turtle population around the 83 islands of Vanuatu. A Vanuatu community theatre group, Wan Smolbag, has taken up the dramatising of the plight of the turtle around the island villages. The play is integral to a programme of recruiting turtle monitors and promoting discussion of the issue among the islanders.
