Turtles in Peril

Reef-Recharge-Hawksbill-Turtle-on-ReefSea Turtles inhabit all the oceans except the Arctic; they have been around for millions of years but sadly they are now threatened with extinction and all the world’s 7 sea turtle species are listed as endangered by Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

Maldivian waters are home to 5 of the world’s 7 living sea turtle species; Hawksbill, Green, Olive Ridley, Loggerhead and Leatherback. The plight of turtles is very close to our hearts, and we do our best to save them from threats caused by humans and raise awareness about their plight.
