Save Our Sea Turtles (SOS) is a registered community based organization, founded in 2000 with an ambitious mission to conserve Tobago’s sea turtles and their coastal and marine habitat through research, education and eco-tourism.
We achieve this through the hardwork of our volunteers, the blessing of the Tobago House of Assembly and the support of institutional funders and individual donors.
Our programs include:
- Monitoring and data collection on the three main leatherback nesting beaches in the Courland Bay area and at key sites around the island and offshore.
- Encouraging sustainable economic growth in the community by supporting turtle friendly businesses and tour guides.
- Working with local government, the private sector and the schools to raise awareness of turtle conservation issues locally and nationally.
SOS is a member of the Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network (WIDECAST ) and a founding partner organization in Turtle Village Trust.
