Casa Congo was recently featured in The State of the World’s Sea Turtles XV report. SWOT reports are created and released annually and are conceived to raise awareness on sea turtles research and conservation. The SWOT team award small grants each year to help field-based sea turtle research and conservation projects.
Casa Congo was awarded a grant to construct and maintain a hatchery that not only will protect sea turtle nests but also will serve as an education tool for youth in the local communities. Since it started Casa Congo has saved over 20,000 turtle eggs and has employed 5 workers in the ocean conservation program for turtle research, ecological education, beach cleanups and surf lessons for children.
Casa Congo is honoured to be featured in this report that presents some of the most cutting edge developments in sea turtles conservation. Our team send a warm thank you to the SWOT team for the grant received and for the feature in XV volume of the SWOT report.
