Pledge 1% Update: SEETurtles.org
The Collab Catalyst is still a very new company, but it was important to establish our values and the accountability for how we embody them early. One of our core values is always give back As such, I have pledged to donate 1% of our net profit and 1% of our time towards causes that are important to us.
This month, we made our first donation to an organization called SEETurtles.
SEETurtles connects people with sea turtles in meaningful, personal and, memorable ways. They help the sea turtle community connect, grow, and thrive by supporting community-based conservation efforts. Their impact is impressive:
They have saved more than 9 million turtle hatchlings at more than 60 nesting beach conservation projects in 25 countries across Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia, and Africa. We have provided more than 200 grants to date, totaling more than US $900,000 in funding.
More than 1,500 people have visited turtle projects, supporting conservation and local communities. More than 500 volunteers have completed more than 5,000 work shifts at turtle projects.
We have generated more than US $1 Million in benefits for turtle conservation and local communities through tours, donations, and in-kind services.
