We all love sea turtles, and if you want to help protect them, or if you see one, the place to turn is Seaturtle.org. They are having a fund-raiser right now, if turtles are you thing. 😉
What began as “Turtle Tidings” in 1996 and embodies a desire to support research and conservation efforts in the sea turtle community has morphed into a website and the Marine Turtle Newsletter. Learn about the Annual Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation and centralized database management systems to help organizations working to conserve sea turtles to manage, organize and share their data, including the Satellite Tracking and Analysis System (STAT), the Sea Turtle Rehabilitation and Necropsy Database (STRAND) and the Sea Turtle Nest Monitoring System (STNMS). These tools are available for use by all sea turtle organizations and other wildlife tracking organizations.
“Additional efforts include the sea turtle links, the definitive list of sea turtle resources on the web and the sea turtle news archive. SEATURTLE.ORG also provides an online home to other organizations such as the Marine Turtle Research Group, the International Sea Turtle Society, and the North Carolina Sea Turtle Project.”
