Oceanic Society is delighted to announce seven small grants awarded to sea turtle conservation projects in Bangladesh, Brazil, Ghana, Peru, Maldives, São Tomé and Príncipe, and the United States. The grants were made as part of our global State of the World’s Sea Turtles (SWOT) Program, which has hosted an annual small grants competition since 2006. In total, 58 grants have been awarded to 49 sea turtle research and conservation projects in more than 40 countries.
