Mission Statement

The Leatherback Trust is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving the leatherback sea turtle. Our mission is to promote the conservation of leatherbacks and other turtles at risk of extinction.

Description

Eastern Pacific leatherback turtles are critically endangered. This population of sea turtles has declined by more than 98% since 1990. The Leatherback Trust is working to reverse this trend by tackling the 5 most deadly threats to leatherbacks and other sea turtles around the world. Our scientists conduct research at nesting beaches and at sea, collecting critical data to support conservation interventions. We partner with communities to protect nesting beaches and work with governments to inform sustainable development and fisheries management priorities.
