Sea Turtle Conservancy’s mission is to ensure the survival of sea turtles, with a particular emphasis on Florida’s turtle populations, through research, education, training, advocacy and protection of the natural habitats upon which they depend.
Since its founding by Dr. Archie Carr in 1959, STC has spawned the global movement to save sea turtles; discovered much of what is known about their life history; and led conservation programs that are helping recovery sea turtles around the world.
The endowment specifically supports STC’s programs in Brevard County, including its work on behalf of the Archie Carr Refuge (the most important turtle nesting site in the U.S.) and its many education and research programs at the Barrier Island Center in Melbourne Beach.
