Be part of the solution and save a turtle today!
The goal of the Marine Turtle Conservation Project is to implement a comprehensive reasearch and satellite tracking programme to conserve marine turtles of the gulf and wWorldwide. Having existed for more than 200 million years, marine turtles are now highly endangered and suffer tremendous risk to their lives. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), six out of the seven species of marine turtles are critically endangered. ADOPT A TURTLE TODAY !

How you will be Helping the Turtles?
All proceeds from the sale of this adoption pack go towards the Marine Turtle Conservation Project. The EWS WWF Marine Turtle Satellite tracking project is focusing on:
- Indentifying the turtle's nesting grounds and feeding habitat in the gulf
- Ultimately, expanding and creating marine protected areas
- Rasing awareness about the marine turtles in the region
- Helping local communities conserve and manage the natural environment
Marine Turtles in the Middle East are threatened, mostly through, habitat loss and indirect capture in fisheries, and are in dire need of conservation action. With long maturation period and low survival, they have extremely low replenishment rates. Therefore, the turtle population depleted, can take centuries to recover. To conserve these ancient treasures, EWS WWF needs to understand the biological and developmental needs of the turtles. By tracking the marine turtles through the Gulf region, EWS WWF plans to raise the collective awareness of their plight and help nations develop concurrent conservative agendas.
The project will track at least 75 post-nesting female Hawksbill turtles over a 3 year period and will identify critical overseas migration routes and near-shore habitats favoured by the turtles.
