SEE Turtles Offers Educational Trips and School Presentations for Teachers

Beaverton, OR (PressExposure) October 30, 2009 -- SEE Turtles (, a non-profit conservation project, has launched a new school outreach program that offers educational trips, fundraising tips, and school presentations. Sea turtles are a great way to teach students about ecology, conservation, and the ocean and our program has everything teachers need to engage their classes.

Our School Outreach Program includes: Educational Trips: Hands-on participation in scientific research on nesting beaches in Costa Rica and foraging areas of Baja California Sur (Mexico); School Presentations: Engaging presentations by sea turtle experts for your class or group; Fundraising Programs: Easy ways for your group to raise money for important turtle conservation programs; and Classroom Resources: Lesson plans on climate change, adaptations, food webs, and threats to sea turtles, as well as fact sheets and other resources.

SEE Turtles believes that education combined with hands-on participation in conservation programs is the best way to reach students and encourage them to become active citizens. These charismatic animals can inspire students to learn more about ocean ecology, geography, real world approaches to conservation, and much more.

About Director SEE Turtles

SEE Turtles ( is an Ocean Foundation conservation tourism project that links people with sea turtle sites in ways that directly support efforts to protect sea turtles, while increasing resources in communities to help residents thrive and value sea turtles. Going beyond the ecotourism mantra of "leave only footprints", SEE Turtles suggests that travelers should make a positive impact through conservation tourism. Conservation tourism supports communities protecting sea turtles by increasing the income needed for local conservation efforts, providing economic alternatives to end threats to sea turtles and inspiring travelers to take a more active role in protecting wildlife.
