The Sea Turtle Conservancy

About the project

The Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC) is the world's oldest sea turtle research and conservation organization. Pacsafe’s sponsorship of STC in both 2015 and 2016 helped fund their Tour de Turtles Education Program, which tracks the migration of sea turtles through the USA, Caribbean and Latin America.

Results

Through the satellite-tracking of sea turtles, STC has been able to gather definitive proof of these migration routes, enabling education of established foraging grounds and allowing the monitoring of breeding activity in those areas. The fund also provided local community outreach in Florida, Nevis, Bermuda, Panama and Costa Rica, as well as worldwide awareness through the Tour de Turtles website.
