|Sea Turtle Conservancy|
It is the mission of Sea Turtle Conservancy to ensure the survival of sea turtles within the Caribbean, Atlantic and Pacific through research, education, training, advocacy and protection of the natural habitats upon which they depend.
Initially created as "Turtle Tidings" in 1996, SEATURTLE.ORG was founded out of a desire to support research and conservation efforts in the sea turtle community. This goal is achieved primarily through the SEATURTLE.ORG website and has included providing online access to the Marine Turtle Newsletter and supporting registration and administration of the Annual Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation. More recently, we have begun to add centralized database management systems to help organizations working to conserve sea turtles to manage, organize and share their data. These include the Satellite Tracking and Analysis System (STAT), the Sea Turtle Rehabilitation and Necropsy Database (STRAND) and the Sea Turtle Nest Monitoring System (STNMS).

|Ghost Nets Australia|
GhostNets Australia operates under a simple philosophy: "saltwater people working together". Everyone, from ranger to researcher, who cares for the marine environment is a saltwater person and only by working together can we achieve change. Since 2004 we have prevented over 14,000 abandoned, discarded or lost fishing nets from continuing their deadly journey around the ocean, where they trap and further threaten our endangered marine life by removing them from this system. We have rescued more than 400 marine turtles from a slow and painful death.
|Ningaloo Turtle Program|
In Western Australia's spectacular Ningaloo Reef you can experience a volunteer program like no other. The Ningaloo Turtle Program is based around one of the largest fringing reef systems in the world and is located approximately 1200km north of Perth in Western Australia. Teeming with a diversity of corals, fish and invertebrates, the reef provides habitat for some of the world's threatened marine species, including dugongs, whale sharks, humpback whales and turtles.
|Sea Turtle Foundation|
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.

NTG was formed in 2003 by Lemuel Pemberton. Once formed, NTG gathered together a number of concerned volunteers to help monitoring the nesting beaches on Nevis. NTG volunteers work at night on beaches around Nevis to tag sea turtles and collect information about the nesting and movement of Nevis' sea turtles. Additional information, such as levels of nest predation and poaching are collected during morning surveys. NTG also gives presentations about sea turtles at local schools and works to involve children in sea turtle related activities.
Ocean Spirits is a registered, non-profit conservation organisation based in Grenada. From its inception in 1999, Ocean Spirits has focused primarily on the protection of marine turtles found throughout Grenada's coastal waters and beaches. Today, we operate a scientific research programme that spans 6 months of the year; manage a nation wide education initiative that to date has reached over 4000 students and continually develop the idea that there are no better stewards of Grenada's turtles than the communities that have historically relied upon them.
|St. Kitts Sea Turtle Monitoring Network (SKSTMN)|
The St. Kitts Sea Turtle Monitoring Network (SKSTMN) is a community based nonprofit organization founded in January 2003 which monitors nesting sea turtle populations & acts as an advocate for the strengthening of sea turtle protection laws. We are working in conjunction with the St. Kitts Department of Marine Resources and a number of national, regional, and international agencies along with local citizens to develop a long term sea turtle monitoring & protection program. Currently, our leatherback monitoring efforts are concentrated on the 2 primary leatherback nesting beaches & we are conducting early morning & night surveys, & tagging. Hawksbill and green efforts are concentrated on the main nesting sites and foraging hawksbills and greens are being tagged offshore. The data gathered is being used to promote conservation in order to improve laws & change long-standing attitudes regarding the importance of sea turtles not only to the island's ecosystem but economy.
