The Turtle Foundation is an international network of affiliated organizations committed to protect sea turtles and their habitats worldwide. In cooperation with local communities, we aim to prevent all species of sea turtles from being killed, their nesting beaches from being polluted and overbuilt, and their marine habitats from being contaminated and destroyed by plastic waste and other pollution.

What We Do
In cooperation with our implementing partner Yayasan Penyu Indonesia, we are campaigning against the use of products that are made from turtleshell. The turtleshell trade is the main threat for the survival of the hawksbill turtle. Furthermore, we conduct surveys to identify priority nesting beaches and migratory patterns of hawksbill turtles in Indonesia.
