About 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. We recently joined forces with Oceanic Society, America's first non-profit dedicated to ocean conservation.

 

MISSION:

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