SEA TURTLE CONSERVATION
SEA TURTLE CONSERVATION PROJECTS ABROAD
Sea turtles have been living and thriving in the world’s oceans for more than 150-million years, but today they are in danger of extinction. Each sea turtle species uniquely affects the diversity, habitat, and functionality of its environment, and they play a vital role in maintaining the health of the oceans. Sea turtle projects in Costa Rica and Guatemala are managed by both local and international environmentalists and biologists. The primary focus of these projects is to increase the birth rate and survival of baby sea turtles. The projects also work to collect data and educate the local community about sea turtles and the marine eco-system.
