Leatherback turtles are an endangered species and a campaign developed by Ecology Project International (EPI) is trying to help restore their populations. So far, the project in Costa Rica has helped reduce illigal turtle egg collection, laid on a supposedly protected beach in the Pacaure Reserve from originally 80% collected to less than 2% today.

EPI uses students in their field work to help build a sense of environmental responsibility and appreciation for wildlife conservation efforts. An animation of the Costa Rican turtle project is narrated by a young kid here:

Like many non-profit organizations, EPI relies on donations to support their work. You can help their project here.
