A big thanks to all our anonymous donors


How we spend your money

Whatever the size of the donation, we manage your gift responsibly to ensure the maximum benefit for sea turtles. We keep our administrative costs as low as possible by having the support of around 40 volunteers and year round assistance of one intern.

 

Your money is invested in 3 fundamental aspects:

Staff: STCB staff consists out of 2 full-timers and 1 part-time contractor.

Equipment: equipment is essential for our ongoing nest monitoring and in-water surveys.

Transportation: to do our job, we depend on our truck and boat to conduct fieldwork. That means that a part of your donations will go to finance our transport.
