Did you know that about seven sea turtle species are already endangered? The good news is that conservation efforts towards protecting marine turtles are becoming popular around the world.
Most people don’t know that sea turtles help to maintain balance in the ecosystem. Seven diverse marine turtle species grace our oceans, from Coral Triangle’s colorful reefs to Eastern Pacific’s sandy beaches and the Indian Ocean’s shallow seagrass beds.
While these migratory species occasionally come ashore to nest or bask in the sun, sea turtles spend the majority of their lives in the ocean.
Pet Turtle focuses on five marine turtle species: olive ridley, hawksbill, green, leatherback, and loggerhead.
Pet Turtle is a nonprofit organization that has been protecting marine turtles since 2002.
With a headquarter in New York City, Pet Turtle, focuses on advocating for the critically endangered marine turtle species.
We belong to various sea turtle conservation networks. For almost 20 years, Pet Turtle has been leading the advocacy to conserve sea turtles and other marine wildlife.
This program provides support for crucial turtle nesting beaches. Through Save the Baby Turtles, we’ve been able to save over 2 million hatchlings.
Through our conservation trips, we provide financial support and volunteers for our conservation efforts.
This campaign against endangered species like sea turtles will only be effective when we tackle all the possible causes.
Based on Pet Turtle’s almost two decades of sea turtle conservation experience, we aim to create a policy focused on improving marine turtles’ survival outlook in New York.
We founded our educational program in 2008 to engage and research issues that affect marine wildlife like sea turtles.
