SAVE THE SEA TURTLES
Sea turtles play a crucial role in our ocean ecosystems. They help to maintain sea grass bed and coral reefs which provides other marine life with a healthy habitat. With the threats of overfishing and climate change, these turtles are critically endangered.
The Sea Turtle Conservancy is the oldest sea turtle research and conservation group in the world, founded in 1959 by Dr. Archie Carr, world-renowned sea turtle expert. They work to conserve the world's sea turtle population through advocacy, education, research, and by protecting their natural habitat. You can find out more about their work by visiting their website, as well as information about the role of sea turtles in the health of the world’s marine and coastal ecosystems.
