Marine conservation and community development – centred around our holistic approach to conservation
Sea turtles are vulnerable to human impact on the environment. Since sea turtles need a wide range of habitats throughout their lives, they are impacted by:
Development of the beach environment
Destruction of the mangrove forest
Destruction of sea grass meadows
Destruction of coral reefs
Climate change & Ocean level rise
These threats to sea turtles are also negatively impacting humanity, through coastal erosion, loss of food security, weather extremes and loss of livelihoods.
As sea turtles are such a fantastic indicator of ocean health, if we protect and enhance the environmental elements that sea turtles need to thrive, humanity will also benefit greatly.
