Sea turtles are a threatened and endangered species and we need to help them last. Our actions on land create reactions in the ocean - good and bad. Wherever you live, take care of our planet. The future of all marine life depends on us!
A Message From Casey, Founder of Love A Sea Turtle
What began as a third grade school field trip in 2005 to the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center has evolved into a passion and fun journey of discovery. My mission has grown and evolved from baking and selling turtle-shaped sugar cookies into an educational outreach program, a year-round calendar of service learning opportunities, coordinator for a marine debris awareness and prevention project, and outdoor environmental summer science camps that trace the path of fresh water to the coast.

Upstream Downstream Connection: We stress the need and importance to conserve water and the crisis and challenges many face throughout the world with a lack of fresh drinking water. Outdoor summer camps, River Quest and monofilament recycling are components of our Upstream Downstream Connection.
Summer Camp Programs: Founded on an educational format to trace the path of fresh water from our community to the coast.
River Quest: 100 mile kayak journey to raise awareness of our river systems, conservation, and to involve others in nature and the outdoors. Our initial paddle has led to implementing a stream monitoring program with middle school students in multiple counties.
