SAVE THE TURTLES
The Indigo Turtles Project, now in its 9th year, is part of Mavi's global efforts towards creating a better and greener Earth.
The Indigo Turtles Project is our initiative to save endangered sea turtles native to the Mediterranean and allows us to give back to the communities we are lucky enough to call home.
In partnership with the Ecological Research Society (EKAD), we've been dedicated to research, education, and grassroots mobilization to protect these indigenous sea turtles that are under threat from natural and human-related activities.
Sea turtles are born on land but spend most of their lives in the sea.
They return to their nesting ground where they were born to lay their eggs, traveling thousands of sea miles to return home. Only 40% of the hatchlings make it to the sea and only one in a thousand survives.
The number of nests, which was only 500 when the activities started in the region, reached 3200 last year.
EKAD has succeeded in helping over 1 million turtles in over two decades make it to the sea.
