To support the worldwide protection of sea turtles.
The Turtle Foundation is an international non-profit organization with offices in the United States, Germany, Switzerland and Indonesia. Currently the Turtle Foundation is involved in important protection projects in Cape Verde, West Africa and Indonesia. The Turtle Foundation is primarily run by volunteers, although we provide jobs for local personnel as rangers protecting nesting beaches. For more information and how you can help, see www.turtle-foundation.org
1. Turtle Foundation's successful program in Indonesian has resulted in more than 1 million hatchlings per year being allowed to hatch.
2. Turtle Foundation's beach patrols on Boavista Island, Cape Verde reduced the slaughter by 90% on that beach from the previous year.
3. Turtle Foundation relies heavily on private donations to help protect sea turtles and their eggs from illegal fishing and poaching.
