The Story Behind the Store:
Many populations of sea turtles around the world are close to extinction.
Sea Turtle Foundation is a non-profit, non-government group working to protect sea turtles through research, education and action. Our mission is:
Safeguarding sea turtle populations, migration routes and habitats, and supporting activities that increase sea turtle numbers worldwide.
A group of sea turtle biologists and concerned volunteers formed the Indo-Pacific Sea Turtle Conservation Group in 2001 to address research gaps and threats to sea turtles in the north Queensland region. In 2007, the group became a formal company and changed its name to the Sea Turtle Foundation. In the ensuing years, Sea Turtle Foundation has expanded its activities to a national and international level and continues to grow, completing projects based on our three focus areas: Research, Education, and Action.
