Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC) is hoping all of its supporters will participate in this year’s Giving Tuesday Campaign, which seeks to raise funds for the critical in-water work we are conducting to study and conserve sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico. STC’s In-Water Research Project in Florida has been in high gear over the last several years. The project recently surpassed 300 sea turtle captures in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. The overall goals are to study sea turtle distribution, demographics, health, movements, and threats in this important foraging habitat and to promote their conservation in the region. With funding raised through this year’s Giving Tuesday campaign, STC will continue filling gaps in our knowledge about the sea turtle populations found in this important region, and we will apply that knowledge to effective conservation action.
You can help STC raise $65,000 this Giving Tuesday with your donation being matched by STC’s Board of Directors, up to a total of $33,000!
