The TUl Turtle Aid programme protects endangered and vulnerable sea turtles, especially around nesting beaches. By working with local NGOs and beachfront tourism businesses, it also engages tourists by teaching them about turtles and how to protect them. Together with local conservation initiatives such as Project Biodiversity, the TUI Turtle Aid programme is working towards a more sustainable and turtle-friendly Cabo Verde.

On Sal Island TUI Turtle Aid Cape Verde protects sea turtles through supporting monitoring, relocation, tourism education and community engagement. 


Monitoring Nesting Beaches

Nesting sites are protected by patrols and drones monitoring the beaches, helping to deter and prevent turtle poaching and capturing vital information to keep the turtles and their nests safe.

Conservation Education

Educational activities with local communities and children increase awareness in the

local population about the

importance of turtle protection.

Relocating Sea Turtle Nests

Endangered nests are protected through relocation into hatcheries, ensuring that baby turtles are protected from anthropogenic threats and that the highest possible number of hatchlings reach the sea.

Turtle Friendly Tourism

Tourism activities can have a large impact on natural ecosystems and resources. To reduce their negative impact, tourists and tourism businesses are encouraged to adopt turtle-friendly practices.
