In May 2010, we started a Sea Turtle Rescue pilot project to help protect breeding sea turtles on the Sembehum-Robertsport coast.

The project rescued and returned captured adult sea turtles to the ocean.

Our team leaders work with the local fishermen and “turtle patrols” to encourage awareness of the vital role sea turtles play in the ocean ecosystem.

As we grow, we plan to invite Robertsport visitors to help us release the adult turtles and support the project. Check back here and on our RCW blog for more details!
