€7.00raised of €4,800.00 goal goal
We focus on the protection of sea turtles and their natural habitat. We wish for a world where people care for nature and take an interest in sea turtles. A world where both locals and tourists understand the causes of the alarming drop in the population of these critically endangered reptiles and try to do their best to prevent a further decline of the species.
Save Turtle Organization helps locals to protect turtles effectively and inform tourists how they can help during their holidays. Our main project is together with Konservasi Biota Laut Berau (Indonesian NGO) in Berau region, Indonesia but we are ready to help everywhere where people wish to protect sea turtles effectively.
NOW we are looking for a support for a village Loang, on the Lembata island, which is newly envolved in conservation of 3 turtle species, critically endangered Eretmochelys imbricata (Hawksbill sea turtle) or endangered Lepidochelys olivacea (Olive ridley sea turtle) and Chelonia mydas (Green sea turtle).
You can help us by donating. Even a small amount makes a difference!
The donations will support work of 5 local rangers (325 €/month), educational programs, information signs about illegality of selling or buying turtle eggs and shells! We also built a shadowed hatchery for turtle eggs, where are protected from poachers, predators and too high temperatures, which causes female development only.
