SEE Turtles was launched by Dr. Wallace J Nichols and Brad Nahill 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 501c3 non-profit based in Beaverton, Oregon. All donations are tax deductible. Our EIN is 81-4325149 and our IRS confirmation letter can be downloaded here.
SEE Turtles protects endangered sea turtles throughout Latin America and the world by supporting community-based conservation efforts. Our Billion Baby Turtles program provides support for important turtle nesting beaches and has helped save more than 1 million hatchlings. Too Rare To Wear is a campaign working to end the demand for turtleshell products. Our conservation trips provide volunteer and financial support for conservation efforts and our school programs help teachers and students learn about these incredible animals and how to protect them. Our latest program, Divers For Turtles, inspires divers and the dive industry to support turtle conservation efforts.
