PARTNER OF THE MONTH
Sustainable Coastlines Hawai'i
We’re donating $1 to our friends at Sustainable Coastlines Hawai'i for every Hawksbill Sea Turtle Bracelet sold this month. Our donation will help fund their Marine Debris Rapid Response Program, which helps keep Hawai'i’s marine habitats free from fishing nets and other harmful marine debris.
Our donation will be used to support marine debris recovery
Immediate action on reports of harmful fishing nets and other marine debris
There is a small population of hawksbill sea turtles that live, feed, and nest almost exclusively on the Hawaiian archipelago. It may be one of the smallest nesting sea turtle populations in the world with fewer than 15 females nesting here each year. Fishing gear entanglement in nearshore feeding habitats is a serious threat to Hawai'i’s hawksbill sea turtle population. With so few of these animals left in the world, it’s crucial that we save as many hawksbills as possible.
Marine Debris Rapid Response Program
Our donation to Sustainable Coastlines Hawai'i will support the development and maintenance of their Marine Debris Rapid Response Program, which allows crews to immediately respond to reports of harmful debris like ghost nets, microplastics, and other large debris accumulations on the islands.
By removing these hazards from the environment as soon as they’re reported, we can prevent needless injuries and deaths not just for hawksbill sea turtles, but for all the animals that call these waters home.
