Billion Baby Turtles provides critical funding for important turtle nesting beaches around the world where human activities such as egg consumption threaten sea turtle populations. To date, we have saved more than 2 million hatchlings at 25 nesting beaches around the world. Funding comes from sponsors, donors, school groups, and our conservation tours.
Too Rare To Wear is a coalition of conservation organizations, tour operators, and many others. Our goal is to end the sale of turtleshell products to travelers in Latin America to protect the critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle. We published a ground-breaking report detailing the trade in Latin America, have reached millions of people with our outreach, and have built a coalition of 150 tour operators and conservation organizations working together to end this trade.
SEE Turtles Conservation Tours are unique hands-on experiences that benefit sea turtle conservation programs across Latin America. To date, we have generated more than $1 million for local communites and protection efforts in six countries and brought more than 1,300 people to volunteer, totaling more than 5,000 work shifts.
