SOS Tartarugas works in Cape Verde protecting nesting loggerheads turtles (Caretta caretta) and their habitat. Cape Verde is the third most important nesting area for loggerheads in the world. Turtles are at risk from hunting for meat, stealing of eggs, removal of sand for building and unregulated tourism development. Our email is

World Oceans Day & Volunteer Night at Blu Bar Tues Jun 8th

Volunteers based on Sal are really important to us and apart from giving the full time Rangers a break, our volunteers provide an important link between SOS and the community.  Becoming a volunteer is really simple and you can choose whatever level of participation you like - from walking on the beach assisting a Ranger a couple of times during the season to completing a full programme of training. Or you could simply participate in our outreach programme which includes school visits, public meetings, tourism activities and beach clean ups.

Seeing turtles in their natural environment is an incredible sight and helping to protect them can be an extremely rewarding experience.

If you have ever felt curious about what SOS Tartarugas is all about please come along to Blu Bar on Tuesday night (World Ocean Day).  We will make a short presentation at 6.15pm and Rangers will be available until 9pm to answer any questions.  We will have English, Italian, Portuguese & German speakers available.
