LIFE BELOW WATER
We have been working tirelessly on conserving endangered freshwater and sea turtle species since our inception so that we can bring them back from the brink of extinction and preserve these beautiful creatures for our future generations. We use a multi-pronged approach towards turtle conservation that entails education in schools, field trips and public awareness campaigns, so that we are able to preserve our unique biodiversity.
Sea Turtle Conservation
Green Hope Foundation recognizes the critical importance of mangroves in protecting our ocean ecosystem and life below water. Hence, we focus on educating people about mangrove conservation through our sustainability academies, with our mangrove restoration projects ranging from conducting cleanups to mass plantations. So far, we have planted more than 25,000 mangroves and restored over 3000 sq. km of mangrove ecosystems.

Tiger Widows as Fish Farming Entrepreneurs
Green Hope Foundation works to ensure that women are equipped with the tools & skillsets to earn a stable source of income & sustain their families. We are empowering women the who have lost their husbands to tiger attacks, known as tiger widows, in the Sundarbans, the world’s largest mangrove forest, to become fish farming entrepreneurs by repopulating their ponds with native fish species. This will enable them to practice fish farming, sell the fish and have a stable source of livelihood, all while regenerating their local aquatic biodiversity.
At Green Hope Foundation, one of the ways we do our bit for biodiversity conservation is by adopting animals and helping to support their care and protection. To protect life below water, we have adopted an endangered Hawksbill Turtle named Nadia.
