Since 2011, AES El Salvador has supported initiatives for the protection of the endangered olive ridley sea turtles. Every year, the team donates thousands of eggs for incubation in corrals, or nesting sites, which are prepared by their team of AES volunteers. Later, project collaborators and families participate in the release of the hatchlings. To date, 270 volunteers from AES El Salvador companies have participated in these activities.
