Founded in 1989, Turtle Island Restoration Network has been a leading advocate for the world’s oceans and marine wildlife. From the waters of California to the Gulf coast of Texas, TIRN focuses on grassroots empowerment, hands-on restoration, and environmental education while also promoting sustainable marine policies and inspiring consumer change.
For 30 years, our efforts have safeguarded sea turtles and inspired the public to join us in our conservation efforts through education, outreach, classroom visits, and habitat protection efforts.
To further our reach and expand our impact, TIRN seeks to launch the Conservation and Education Center in Galveston, Texas. By expanding our capacity, we will improve access to environmental education and inspire our community to participate in conservation efforts aimed at protecting sea turtles and other marine species. Together, we will bring and sustain marine conservation and education to the Texas community and its visitors each year.
