The hawksbill turtle is one of only two species of sea turtles listed as critically endangered globally by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, the result of an 80 percent population decline.
Hawksbills are critical to marine ecosystems, contributing to the overall biodiversity of their habitats. Without our continuing work, hawksbill turtles will likely die out in the eastern Pacific.
To maximize disbursement of funds directly to conservation efforts, we have minimal overhead with projects and personnel located in Latin America, where the cost of living is lower. Private donations from individuals like you are put to use efficiently and cost-effectively ensuring that your contribution has the highest conservation value, bringing hawksbill turtles back from the brink of extinction.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to ICAPO.
