SEE Turtles

SEE Turtles

SEE Turtles was launched in 2008 as the world’s first effort to protect these species through ecotourism. Since then, we have expanded to include educational programs and our Billion Baby Turtles project. The project was formed as part of Ocean Conservancy and became a sponsored project of The Ocean Foundation in 2009.

Our mission is to protect endangered turtles throughout Latin America and the world by supporting community-based conservation efforts through ecotourism, education, and fundraising through Billion Baby Turtles.

CONSERVATION SUCCESS:

Since our launch, we have helped save sea turtles in many different ways:

  • We have generated more than $500,000 in benefits for turtle conservation and local communities through tours, donations, and in-kind services.
  • Billion Baby Turtles has saved more than 100,000 turtle hatchlings at conservation projects across Latin America.
  • More than 250 volunteers have completed more than 3,000 work shifts at turtle projects.
  • We have reached more than 5,000 students across the US and Latin America with our educational programs.
