Where We Work

Click on the markers on the map to learn more about our bases.

Sea turtles are global citizens and the Olive Ridley Project (ORP) works to protect sea turtles and their habitats all over the world. Thanks to the internet and social media, our educational and outreach initiatives reach people from the US, to Germany, to India and Australia. Our field work is currently concentrated in the Indian Ocean region, however, we have plans to expand beyond this region in the near future.

ORP Headquarters – UK

ORP was established in the UK in 2013 and became a registered charity in England & Wales in 2016. Our field and outreach work takes place in many parts of the world, however, ORP is headquartered in the UK. Most of the running of the charity, including management, administration and fundraising, take place here.

In addition, we carry out educational outreach in the UK, teaching and talking about sea turtles, sea turtle conservation, sea turtle veterinary science, research and the work we do. We visit schools, after school clubs, universities, conferences, and any organisation who is interested in knowing more about our work and sea turtles.

If you would like us to visit your school or organisation, please contact us on info@oliveridleyproject.org
