GAINESVILLE, FL— Show your mom some green love on Mother’s Day. Celebrate her special day with some of these eco-friendly ideas:

      1. Instead of buying a paper card this year, send an e-card or purchase cards made from recycled or tree-free paper.


      2. Make dinner reservations at a local restaurant that features organic or locally-grown foods.


      3. Buy her a feel-good gift. Consider shopping for gift ideas that give back to sea turtles, like



Loggerhead Apparel


Reller Gold

      , which partner with Sea Turtle Conservancy to donate a portion of their proceeds to conservation efforts.


      4. Bond with your mom and Mother Nature by going on a picnic or weekend trip to a wildlife preserve or park, such as the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge in Melbourne Beach, Florida.


      5. Give your mom a

gift membership

    by adopting a “momma” sea turtle as a unique and personalized way to show how much you care!

For a tax-deductible donation of $30 or more, you can adopt an endangered sea turtle from Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC) and your mother will receive a personalized adoption certificate, a Sea Turtle Conservation Guide, a membership window cling, a sea turtle sticker and bookmark, a hatchling magnet, and a one-year subscription to STC’s membership publication – all in a keepsake turtle folder.

And your gift will last more than just one day as your mother will be able to track her adopted turtle online at and watch as her momma turtle travels the world’s oceans.

STC also offers Sea Turtle Adoption Gift Cards that gives your mother the option of choosing which turtle to adopt. Visit to meet the sea turtles available for adoption, learn more about STC’s conservation program and adopt your favorite turtle.
