How does Help4Nature save the turtles?
We work together with a talented & experienced non-profit company called SEE Turtles / seeturtles.org, to #savetheturtles. Together we save thousands of baby turtles, but all of this would not be possible without you!
We are donating to the Billion Baby Turtles ProgrammThe Billion Baby Turtles supports sea turtle conservation organizations that work to protect sea turtle hatchlings across Latin America. The funds go towards paying local residents to patrol important turtle nesting beaches, protecting turtles that come up to nest, and ensuring that the eggs are protected. Prioritizing nesting beach projects that protect the most endangered turtle species and populations, are newer (less than 5 years old) with less stable sources of funding, and those that more immediate threats like consumption of turtle eggs and meat and hunting.
