Thank You From Butterfly Rewards Partner – Billion Baby Turtles

On Care2, our members make a difference every day.  One great example is our Butterfly Rewards program. Simple actions on our site add up to Butterfly Rewards credits. These credits are a great way for our members to give back, without spending a penny of their own money. Butterfly rewards credits can be redeemed for offsetting a pound of carbon with CarbonFund, giving a day of safe drinking water for a child through Population Services International or bottle feeding a kitten or saving over 7,500 turtle hatchlings with Billion Baby Turtles!

We’ve recently received a message from Billion Baby Turtles that we wanted to share with you.

Thank You from Billion Baby Turtles!

Happy New Year from Billion Baby Turtles! We wanted to send a note of appreciation to the wonderful members of Care2 for all of the support over the past few months. Since our partnership started, Care2 members have helped to save roughly 7,500 baby sea turtles in Mexico!

The Butterfly Rewards help to support a conservation project at Colola beach in Mexico that is run by the University of Michoacan. This project helps to protect one of the most important black turtle (a sub-species of green turtle) nesting beaches in the world and every hatchling counts. A rare conservation success story, the black turtles nesting here are increasing due to more than a decade of hard work by local and international conservationists.

This project has a long way to go to get the number of nests back to historic levels but with the help of Care2 and its members, we’ll reach that goal! Thanks for your help!
