The Billion Baby Turtles Project - SEE Turtles 

The Billion Baby Turtles Project is a program run by SEE Turtles which was launched in 2008 as the world's first effort to protect these species through ecotourism. Originally fiscally-sponsored by the Ocean Foundation and most recently Oceanic Society, SEE Turtles is now an independent non-profit based in Beaverton, Oregon. Their mission is to protect endangered sea turtles throughout Latin America and the world by supporting community-based conservation efforts.

Their goal is to raise funds for community-based sea turtle nesting beach conservation projects around the world. To date, Billion Baby Turtles has saved more than 3 million hatchlings due to support from sponsors, schools, donors, and SEE Turtles conservation tours!

The funds go towards paying local residents to patrol important turtle nesting beaches, protecting turtles that come up to nest, and ensuring that the eggs are protected.
