About Us

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.

We work towards providing effective and long-lasting positive change towards protecting the likes of coho salmon, whale sharks, and green sea turtles.

By working with communities and individuals, we restore and preserve critical habitats like the biodiverse Cocos Island waters and redwood-forested creekbanks of California.

We accomplish our mission through consumer action, grassroots empowerment, environmental education, strategic litigation, hands-on restoration, and by promoting sustainable international, national, and local marine policies.
