Only seven species of sea turtle inhabit the world’s oceans. Five are listed internationally as endangered or critically endangered. These marine species currently face multiple threats – rising sea temperatures, entanglement in nets, plastic, oil spills, being hit by ships and the confusing effects of artificial lights, which disorient hatchlings.

It can take up to 30 years for turtles to reach sexual maturity, and many species take a long time to recover from these adverse impacts. Funds you donate will go towards helping Sea Turtle Foundation scientists working on tracking, climate change and nesting and migration.
