By donating just $1, you are ensuring that we can fully incubate, hatch and release one marine turtle hatchling back into the sea. The statistic stands that only one in every 1,000 hatchlings will reach sexual maturity and adulthood and your donation will help to ensure that ratio grows.
Every donation received by Littlefeet Environmental is critical in every aspect of the work that we do; whether it be tagging and micro-chipping juvenile Hawksbills on the coral reels of Banco Chinchorro or flagging nests and taking GPS coordinates on evening monitoring patrols within the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve. Each donation contributes to the further development of our logistical tactics, research methodologies and community involvement throughout the ecologically sensitive and culturally diverse areas that we operate in.
Ultimately, our aim is to ensure the survival of marine turtles in every aspect of their lifecycle, from the moment they are laid as a delicate clutch in the sand until the time that the nesting females return to the beaches once again. This magnificent species has been navigating the planet under water for millions of years and deserves to be protected, cherished and shared for many generations to come. Because, without marine turtles, the oceans would be a much lonelier place!
To build an environmentally and socially responsible community of organizations and individuals through ecological research, sustainable travel and volunteering while utilizing marine turtles as flagship species to develop volunteer expeditions and initiate collective community involvement.
