Marine turtles face stiff odds of making it to adulthood and reproducing. Factor in exploitation for their meat, eggs, and shells and the chances of making it to adulthood are astronomical indeed.
In Vietnam, Education for Nature -Vietnam is turning the tide for marine turtles in the Con Dao archipelago, the last stronghold for globally important populations of sea turtles like the hawksbill and green sea turtle. Our holistic approach to reducing consumer demand, making Con Dao marine turtle-friendly, and strengthening law enforcement is a winning formula.

· $50 will rescue a turtle reported to ENV by the public via our Wildlife Crime Hotline. ENV will ensure that the turtle gets released back into the ocean.
· $100 helps support the operation of ENV’s national toll-free hotline through which the public reports wildlife crimes.
· $1,000 supports one ENV “Outpost” for a year. Each outpost is composed of volunteers who are recruited and trained to monitor restaurants and markets, report marine turtle violations, and host local awareness activities urging the public not to consume wildlife. ENV Outposts are currently active in 17 cities throughout Vietnam.
But every single dollar counts when it comes to protecting beyond precious marine turtles.
