Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network

The KIDO Foundation has joined the Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network (WIDECAST) to protect sea turtles. Only 1 in 1500 hatchlings make it to egg laying maturity and sea turtle population has plummeted 90% worldwide just in the last 10 years. The Hawksbill and giant Leatherback can be observed nesting at night from March to September and guests and volunteers can arrange to join nesting patrols as part of the WIDECAST effort. Patrols camp and walk the on the beaches at night to help measure and tag the turtles, mark and camouflage nest location, and of course watch the night skies.

We thank the Kido foundation for allowing us producing this exceptional video.
