Welcome to the Sea Turtle Restoration Project blog at www.seaturtles.org.

After 18+ years at the forefront of the environmental movement with our innovative campaigns to protect sea turtles, we are happy to announce our new website.  It has been quite a scramble to transfer to the new site, and as such, the site will continue to grow over the next couple of months as time permits.

We are excited about the new tools and information we have available to motivate people like you to become active in protecting sea turtles, marine biodiversity, and the oceans.

Keep checking out this blog for updates on our exciting campaigns – from working with the tribal villages in Papua New Guinea to protect leatherbacks to challenging the US federal government’s efforts to expand destructive industrial fishing in the Pacific, from strengthening Kemp’s ridley nesting beach protections in Texas to protecting sharks and sea turtles in the waters off Costa Rica.

We’ll keep you updated with dispatches from the field and fisheries meetings, and informed about new ways to help us protect the turtles, our oceans and ourselves.

Thanks for supporting our work.  We couldn’t do it without you.
