About

Casa de Áak will work to increase the population of sea turtles through programs of conservation and education around Champerico, Guatemala.  The venture will educate both young people and fishermen about the importance of conserving the turtles, and will establish a hatchery to protect turtle eggs, with a long-term goal of turtle conservation.  Anderson is also a leader in the USAID-funded SEED program for Latin American youth to study in the United States.  As a brief final note, this is Resolution’s first wildlife conservation venture!
