Description

Save Our Sea Turtles (SOS) is a not-for-profit, community based, volunteer organization based on the island of Tobago, with (as one might rightly assume) the purpose of sea turtle conservation. Since its founding in 2000, SOS's work has greatly improved the survival outlook for sea turtles in Tobago. Their stated aim is 'To conserve our local sea turtle population and their coastal and marine habitat through community based initiatives in research, education and eco-tourism.' The group is a member of WIDECAST.
