We are a small charitable trust, largely run by volunteers. Here are just a few of the rare and beautiful species your donations can protect.


Coral reefs around the world have been decimated by pollution and climate change. While the archipelago has not gone unscathed, there are still enough reefs in good condition to preserve and study.


The coconut crab is a rare and impressive crab that still calls the islands home. Its numbers worldwide have been slashed by over-collection, but our work can help maintain the species and enable it to thrive again.


Hawksbill and green turtles come to the islands every year to breed. With your help, we can reduce the threat of invasive species such as rats, which prey on their eggs and on the young turtles themselves.
