for a Brighter Future
At Ecology Project International (EPI), we engage local communities in youth development, leadership, and habitat conservation, and we run world-class, science-focused travel programs for students and teachers. Together, we're building a brighter, more sustainable future.
Ecology Project International is a nonprofit.
Our mission is to inspire youth with nature and empower them with science, fostering tomorrow's leaders. We envision a diverse movement building communities that cherish and restore the ecosystems that sustain them.
Adopt a hatchling
Change the odds for sea turtles
With less than a 1% chance of survival, leatherback hatchlings need your support!
Your symbolic adoption is a lifeline, shielding these tiny warriors from predators, tidal threats, and illegal harvest.
"This was hands down one of the best experiences of my life. I learned more than I could have hoped to and have so many more questions to motivate me! I have developed even more of a passion for environmental and marine science than when I arrived."
