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 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 shell (also known as "tortoiseshell") is made into jewelry and other products that are sold in markets across Latin America & the Caribbean. 

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