Save The Turtles

   Save The Turtles' main way of conserving sea turtles is sending out Sea Turtle Patrollers. Sea Turtle Patrollers make the difference. Patrolling is a direct protection, boots-on-the-ground job. It’s difficult, but it is a very effective conservation tool. Countless sea turtles and habitats exist today that would not without these patrollers. They walk the beach through the night, sometimes in tropical downpours. When they find a nesting turtle, they sit with her, protecting her until she returns to the ocean and guarding her eggs until they hatch. When the hatchlings emerge, patrollers protect them on their journey to the ocean. Click here to learn more.

Network for Animals (Ukraine Campaign)

Network for Animals is working hard to evacuate, feed, and rescue animals in Ukraine, both ones whose owners have fled due to war and also ones on the streets.


   VaquitaCPR’s goal was to bring vaquitas into temporary human care until all gillnets for shrimp and finfish were banned and removed from their habitat. The biggest reason these beautiful creatures are on the verge of extinction is because of the illegal nets to catch a large fish, the totoaba, which is butchered for its bladder and sold for thousands of dollars each. Along with the totoaba and so much other marine life, vaquitas get entangled in these nets and drown. As they were getting ready for this bold conservation endeavor, the world’s best biologists and veterinarians joined their efforts. Click here to learn more.

Kakapo Recovery

   Their kākāpō recovery work includes tracking with radio telemetry, putting out food and making sure there aren't any pests. During breeding seasons, they monitor kākāpō nests and sometimes hand rear chicks.

Adult kākāpō are solitary and reclusive. They handle them around once a year for a health checkup and to change the transmitter. Other than that, they leave them to live as naturally as possible. Click here to find out more.
