TAMAR Project (an abbreviation of Tartarugas Marinhas, the Sea Turtles) is a Brazilian non-profit organization owned by the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation. The main objective of the project is to protect sea turtles from extinction in the Brazilian coastline. The project has since expanded to include protection of sharks and all the sea wildlife that are part of the environment in which the sea turtles live.
