Why your support matters 

Over the last six years, Project Biodiversity's conservation efforts have grown exponentially in size and scope. We have established the island's first actively co-managed Marine Protected Area, collaborated with fishing communities to support more sustainable fishing practices, and reconnected a small town of Pedra de Lume to provide access to the economic benefits of tourism and conservation. 

At the heart of all of these programmes is the continued fight to
protect some of the island's most vulnerable species - from the endangered loggerhead turtle to the majestic tropicbird and countless wildlife in-between. Without these species, the terrestrial and marine ecosystems they inhabit would be irreversibly damaged, sending ripple effects through the island's economic, social and cultural spheres. 
 

The fight to protect endangered wildlife is never finished.

This year, our nightly patrols protected over 10.000 turtles and over 316 were directly or indirectly saved from poachers. Still, despite our best efforts, our team recorded over 450 poached turtles over the course of the 2021 nesting season. 

Our goal from one year to the nest is always to reduce - and one day eliminate poaching on the island of Sal and throughout Cabo Verde. Each year, we employ over 40 local staff to help patrol the beaches, raise awareness amongst local communities, and ensure as many baby turtles as possible can be the 1 in 1000 that survive to adulthood. 

With the purchase of this gift, you are ensuring that our team has the capacity and resources to make that possible in 2022. Choose from these exclusive designs and feel good knowing you have made a difference this holiday!
