The Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC) is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization based in Florida with offices and projects in several other locations. STC is the oldest and most accomplished sea turtle organization in the world! Since its founding in 1959, STC's work has greatly improved the survival outlook for several species of sea turtles.
STC is a world-renowned leader in sea turtle research and conservation; we hope you will consider supporting us in our efforts! STC, founded by Dr. Archie Carr and others, has as its mission the protection of sea turtles and the habitats upon which they depend.
To achieve its mission, STC uses research, habitat protection, public education, community outreach, networking and advocacy as its basic tools. These tools are applied in both international and domestic programs focusing on geographic areas that are globally important to sea turtle survival.
Why Sea Turtles: STC has chosen sea turtles as the focus of its conservation efforts in part because these ancient creatures are among the most important indicators of the health of the world's marine and coastal ecosystems.
STC believes that whether sea turtles ultimately vanish from the planet or whether they remain a wild and thriving part of the natural world, will speak volumes about both the general health of the planet and the ability of humans to sustainably coexist with the diversity of life on Earth.
