Defending Turtles in Papua New Guinea
With your support, we have just expanded our international marine conservation efforts, launching a critical new collaboration with Conflict Islands Conservation Initiative (CICI) and Animal Assist to protect endangered turtles from poaching in the Conflict Islands in Papua New Guinea.
This atoll is known as one of Sylvia Earle’s Hope Spots and is an important nesting site for hawksbill and green sea turtles. 🐢
“Without the support in these difficult times from organisations such as Sea Shepherd and Animal Assist, we would not be able to continue our critical work to protect wildlife and conserve our wild places” – CICI’s Operations Manager Hayley Versace.
Sea Shepherd is an international, non-profit marine conservation organization that engages in direct action campaigns to defend wildlife, and conserve and protect the world’s oceans from illegal exploitation and environmental destruction.
