Save A Sea Turtle

Beach conservation

Problem

Sea turtles have been around for more than 150 million years, long before the first dinosaurs walked on Earth. But today, all seven species of turtles are imperiled or even near extinction. Reckless commercial fishing, boat collisions, illegal harvesting, drowning in shrimp nets and other fishing gear, beach development, and destruction of marine and coastal habitat all threaten even the most robust sea turtle populations.

The Gift

Your donation will help us work with our conservation partners to protect coastal beaches used by sea turtles as nesting sanctuaries, educate coastal home and hotel owners on how bright lights interrupt turtle nesting, as well as work to prevent international fishing conglomerates from dismantling laws that protect sea turtles from harmful fishing practices. Your gift will help Defenders save sea turtles and other imperiled wildlife.
