We are getting ready for the return of Operation Jairo!

This summer, our ship the MV Brigitte Bardot will head to the islands of Antigua and Barbuda in order to protect the critically endangered sea turtle populations there during nesting season.

Our crews will conduct onshore patrols and surveys, and collaborate with researchers and other organizations to protect the beaches from poachers and other threats.
