Our Mission

To promote the conservation of endangered and threatened marine turtles in Northeast Florida. [See the Endangered Species Act of 1973 and other protections].

Green Sea Turtle Of the five species of turtles that nest in Florida, there are three species that nest locally: Loggerheads, Greens and Leatherbacks. Loggerheads (Caretta caretta) are the most common, followed by Greens (Chelonia mydas) and, on rare occasions, Leatherbacks (Dermochelys coriacea). We operate under the auspices of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Marine Turtle Program.
