I’m very excited to announce that we have a new addition to the Butterfly Rewards store! We have partnered with SEE Turtles, part of the Ocean Foundation. Care2 members can now save a turtle hatchling! Simply redeem your Butterfly Rewards and you will save a turtle hatchling at Colola Beach, Mexico. SEE Turtles supports community-based conservationists who protect the black turtles (also known as Pacific green turtles) who nest on this beach. The project, run by the University of Michoacan, maintains a hatchery where the eggs are protected from humans and animals until hatching, when they are released to the ocean.
SEE Turtles, part of The Ocean Foundation, supports sea turtle conservation programs around the world through ecotourism, volunteer & educational programs, advocacy, and financial support. This gift will be part of the group’s Billion Baby Turtles project, which aims to save a billion turtle hatchlings over the next decade.
