Community-Based Conservation

Our community-based sea turtle conservation programs are not only helping to protect critically endangered turtles, but also bringing plastic reduction initiatives, beach cleanups, research, youth workshops, and more, to the local communities that we are working in. 100% of your donation will directly support the following:

• Tools for maintaining and protecting nests, including for habitat cleanups.

• Increased staff for night patrols, which is crucial to nest and hatchling survival. 

• Food, water and shelter for biologists. 

• Education material for youth programs.

• Signage near the habitat to avoid unintended destruction.

Our local NGO partners are Ninth Wave Mexico, Yuumtsil Náak Káab, Flora Fauna y Cultura Mexico and Centro Ecologico de Akumal
