In honor of World Sea Turtle Day, the Living Coast Discovery Center invites you to help us protect sea turtles!
All sea turtles found in U.S. Waters are listed under the Endangered Species Act, including the eastern Pacific green sea turtle which is native to the Southern California coastline and nests off of Baja California. With the loss of nesting and feeding habitats, and enormous amounts of trash in the oceans, the future of sea turtles in uncertain.
The sea turtles that call the Living Coast home serve as animal ambassadors for their counterparts in the wild. Through the educational programs at the Living Coast Discovery Center, families and students learn how they can make everyday choices like refusing single-use plastic bags and straws to help decrease the amount of trash making its way into the ocean.
Your gift today will inspire conservation of sea turtles for generations to come. Together, we can protect sea turtles!
