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. Love A Sea Turtle is dedicated to marine and ocean conservation awareness by engaging students in leadership development and environmental stewardship, inspiring others to get involved in year-round service projects and activities, and providing free nature-based summer programs for underserved youth.

Upstream Downstream Connection: We stress the need and importance to conserve water and protect our waterways. Outdoor summer camps, River Guardians, and monofilament recycling are components of our Upstream Downstream Connection.

River Guardians: Our initial 100 mile kayak journey to raise awareness of our river systems, conservation, and to involve others in nature and the outdoors led to implementing River Guardians, a regional stream monitoring and environmental awareness program with middle and high school students on 3 river systems.
