INDIGO TURTLES

Since 2014, ORTA BLU and Mavi were partnering with EKAD (Ecological Research Society) to help save 15.000 baby sea turtles yearly, aiming to protect the Mediterranean fauna for two 110 million year old sea turtle species, the “Caretta Caretta” and “Chelonia Mydas”, both of which have now become endangered. Facing many difficulties, only forty percent of the hatchling turtles reach the water and only one in a thousand survive there after.

The Indigo Turtles project not only offers the little turtles hands-on help in the field, but also utilizes its impressive network to raise awareness about the problem and its potential solutions.
