Our Story

At age 52, I was mesmerized upon meeting students and learning about leatherback nesting’s at Ocean Park beach in San Juan, P.R. Raised in that area, I was not aware about this nor was anybody in my community. This motivated me to establish what would become 7Quillas. Despite increasing threats, sea turtle nests continue to be protected, and hatchlings are safely released every year in Puerto Rico...

Raised in that area, I was not aware about this nor was anybody in my community. This motivated me to establish what would become 7Quillas. Despite increasing threats, sea turtle nests continue to be protected, and hatchlings are safely released every year in Puerto Rico. Unprotected, one out of 1,000 released survives. We have protected over 200 adult turtles and save over 3,000 hatchlings. Sea turtles, keystone species are a valuable force in controlling jellyfish population that feeds on small fish. We are convinced that persistent education, awareness, and outreach programs are medullar for communities to engage in minimizing, and mitigating the impacts which heighten the disastrous effects of climate change. Action is needed for healthy oceans.
