Shrimp nets are dragged along ocean bottoms and are the Number 1 killer of sea turtles, including Endangered Kemp’s ridleys. Join us in reducing the impact of the world’s most wasteful fishery.
Turtle Island is a leading advocate for endangered sea turtles – from tiny Kemp’s ridley hatchlings in the Gulf of Mexico to gentle, giant Pacific leatherbacks off the California Coast.
Our science-based programs protect nesting beaches, stop deadly fishing practices, and halt other threats to sea turtle survival through hands-on conservation and effective advocacy. Join us to help save sea turtles!
