Our goal is to help ensure the survival of the ever decreasing sea turtles, one of the oldest species to still be living on the earth. Some turtle species are over 200 million years old !
Sadly, the numbers are decreasing rapidly due to fishing, overhunting, poaching and many other reasons. Only one in a thousand live to adulthood, meaning nearly all of the seven species are endangered. Of these the Hawksbill Sea Turtle and the Kemps Ridley Sea Turtle are critically endangered.
With the help of you and many other charity organisations, we hope to change this. We can do this by protecting eggs from poachers and predators, limiting environmental and light pollution and changing the way we fish. We need your help to ensure the survival of such a majestic and noble animal.
Together, we can change this world.
100% of funds raised will go towards helping injured and endangered turtles. Your money will go directly to our two chosen turtle charities: www.turtlehospital.org and www.arunandamanturtle.org
(Note - please specify in your donation whether you would like your donation to go to one over the other, or for it to be split evenly. Unless stated otgherwise, we will split all funds 50/50.)
