Save the Turtles Inc, a non-profit sea turtle conservation organization has been saving endangered sea turtles since 2001. Our mission is the direct protection of sea turtles, their eggs and hatchlings. We accomplish this by sending grants to sustainable, community-based projects that enhance the lives of people in the habitat area. Our grants help to fund the salaries of local turtle patrollers who guard the beach at night protecting nesting sea turtles and their eggs from poachers. With your help, we will continue saving sea turtles in 2018 and beyond!

Sea Turtle Conservation
Save the Turtles, Inc. originated as Save the Turtles of Parismina in 2001 when we began providing support to the community of Barra de Parismina, Costa Rica on the Caribbean Coast. We worked diligently with the local turtle association, Asociacion Salvemos Las Tortugas de Parismina and the community assisting them in developing a successful sea turtle conservation program as they provided protection to nesting Green Sea Turtles, Hawksbill Turtles and the greatly endangered Leatherbacks.
In 2007, we changed our name to Save the Turtles, Inc. to reflect our expanded mission, embracing more projects needing assistance, and by 2010, we allotted grants to a variety of amazing programs protecting sea turtles, their eggs and hatchlings in other critical marine turtle habitats.
Save the Turtles, Inc. is an organization exempt from U.S. federal income taxes under section 501 (c) (3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code, and contributions are accordingly tax deductible.
