Individuals making a difference – A joint initiative with major impact

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead.

Turtle Foundation was founded by a small group of dedicated private individuals with the common aim of preventing endangered sea turtles from becoming extinct.

We are an international charitable organization. We are a dedicated volunteer effort and currently are operating our own important protection projects in Cape Verde and in Indonesia. At most 8% of its total expenses are used for administration.

OUR VISION: A future where sea turtles and their habitats are sustainably protected, healthy, and safe from threat of extinction and destruction.

OUR MISSION: To contribute to sea turtle conservation at our own project sites by cooperating with local communities to create a future where both sea turtles and people can thrive.

The Turtle Foundation is represented in the United States, Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Cape Verde. In all these countries, the Turtle Foundation is a tax exempt and non-profit organization. Donations to Turtle Foundation are tax deductible in accordance with the law of the country concerned.
