Working to save sea turtles from extinction through research and conservation.

About this charity

It is the mission of Sea Turtle Conservancy to ensure the survival of sea turtles within the Caribbean, Atlantic and Pacific through research, education, training, advocacy and protection of the natural habitats upon which they depend. 

Over the course of nearly 60 years, Sea Turtle Conservancy’s research programs have yielded much of what is now known about sea turtles and the threats they face. The organisation is applying this knowledge to carry out the world’s most successful sea turtle protection and recovery programs.
