Mission

The Turtle Foundation's mission is the worldwide protection of sea turtles and their habitats. We focus on protecting nesting beaches from egg poaching and the slaughter of female turtles as they come ashore to nest.  We also work with local youth and communities to find strategies that benefit both the communities and the turtles.

Population(s) Served

Turtle Foundation initiated a program in 2008 to protect the beaches on Boavista Island most heavily used by nesting Loggerhead sea turtles. In 2008, this beach was near Porto Ferreiro.  In 2009 and beyond Turtle Foundation hopes to build and maintain a beach camp on site to allow more efficient monitoring of the nesting beaches, and hopes to protect even more beaches used by nesting turtles with the goal of reducing and eventually stopping the slaughter of the turtles of Cape Verde. Turtle Foundation seeks to work with the local population, tourism businesses, and developers to find alternate methods of income generation for the local population to encourage conservation.
