THE STORY:

We need your help to provide support for a sea turtle conservation and hatchery in Jiquilillo, Chinandega, Nicaragua; on Nicaragua’s north pacific coast. The program started as a local community project. Volunteers worked with local families to support the turtle hatchery since fishing boats, population growth, local predators, climate change, and coastline changes have had a detrimental impact on sea turtles, nesting sites, and hatchlings.

OBJECTIVES:

- Save the populations of sea turtles that nest on the beaches of the Estero Padre Ramos Natural Reserve.

- Create a database of sea turtle species that nest on the beaches of the Estero Padre Ramos Natural Reserve.

- Promote environmental education and raise awareness of the importance of sea turtle conservation to locals.

- Continue to give incentives for nests found to collectors in the area, as a mechanism to avoid sale of the species in domestic and international markets.

- Continue to work in partnership with local communities and leaders, state institutions, cooperatives, and schools.

RESULTS:

- Operating in partnership with the community of Punta Venecia, just over 23,000 sea turtle hatchlings were released in 2015.

- The registration process documented information about the origin of the eggs, quantity, species, collector, time of nesting female turtles, tide, etc.

- Sea turtle species documented include Olive Ridley, Hawksbill, and Leatherback.

- There were fewer reports of stolen nests from previous season.

- Turtle nests were guarded in a protected nursery, keeping the eggs safe from all kinds of external predators. 

GOAL:

Last year just over 23,000 turtles were released and it cost $13,000 USD. This year the goal is to release 50,000 turtles; $20,000 is needed by mid-November to meet that goal. Your donation is crucial; we can’t do it without YOU!
