See Turtles is an organization aimed to protect endangered sea turtles by educating the public on turtle conservation, providing volunteer trips, their Billion Baby Turtle project and the Too Rare to Wear initiative.
On your next adventure outside see what turtles you can find! The Atlantic green, Kemp’s Ridley, and loggerhead are Sea turtles all native to the waters surrounding the long island with the Kemp’s Ridley being the most common.
Remember if you ever find an endangered Sea Turtle use caution and do not touch it. Sea turtles are not supposed to be found on land which immediately indicates that something is wrong. Here is who to contact in case you ever come across a turtle in need.
