Help End the Demand for Turtleshell            in Latin America

Hawksbill sea turtles are one of the most beautiful and important species in the ocean. They help coral reefs thrive by eating sponges and are a thrill for divers and snorkelers to see in the wild.

But they have been hunted to the edge of extinction for their colorful shell. Their shells (also known as "tortoiseshell") are made into jewelry and other products that are frequently sold to travelers in markets across Latin America & the Caribbean and other tropical regions. 

Join us to help end the demand for turtleshell products.
Together we’ll bring back these precious sea turtles.
