Save sea turtles in Curacao

this task:

Sea Turtle Conservation Curaçao, a non-profit on the island, focuses on protecting sea turtles and marine life. They conduct regular beach patrols, checking for nesting activity and helping injured turtles. Scientific monitoring includes tracking nesting behavior and relocating nests if needed. They photograph turtles to monitor development and combat fibropapillomatosis, virus-causing tumors.

The goal is to open a rehabilitation center, addressing Curaçao's status as a major site for Fibropapillomatosis outbreaks and becoming a global hub for research and treatment, accommodating up to 10 turtles at once.
