We’re very pleased to add Sea Turtle Conservancy, among the most well-known wildlife NGOs in North America, to our list of front-line conservation & anti-poaching groups. Founded in 1956, STC has seen great success in preventing the Caribbean green turtle from becoming extinct and in improving populations of numerous turtle species throughout Central America, the Caribbean, and Florida. Advocacy and policy initiatives backed by scientific research in addition to direct habitat conservation have made STC an incredibly successful organization. Education and outreach programs have reached over half a million children worldwide and continues to teach the importance of protecting the regions’ habitats and beaches. Management and stewardship programs, as well as hands-on volunteering opportunities, allow people of all ages and skill-levels to get involved in sea turtle conservation. Sea Turtle Conservancy is a registered tax-deductible charity in the United States.
