Turtles need TEDs: Be the change sea turtles need to survive
Join the NBSTCC as we join forces with Oceana and One More Generation to advocate for legislature to require the use of TEDs (Turtle Excluder Devices) in all shrimp trawl nets. We’re asking for educators and children across the country to send as many letters and pictures as possible to President Obama and Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker explaining why they love sea turtles and think they should be protected in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico.
This campaign can bring about a real change for endangered and threatened sea turtles.
Oceana and One More Generation will collect these letters and deliver them to the Obama administration on World Sea Turtle Day (June 16, 2016). Please send letters no later than May 23, 2016 to either of the addresses listed below. Letters may also be scanned and emailed:

News and Events
Turtle Treks Program available for April!
Although we have not yet welcomed our resident sea turtle, we are receiving many requests for programs and tours of the Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center. In response to these requests we will be hosting “Turtle Treks” Saturday programs during the month of March.
NBSTCC prepares to welcome its resident sea turtle: The largest project of this expansion is the building of a residential sea turtle pool. This saltwater pool will hold 15,000 gallons and will house a non-releasable sea turtle, one that is unable to survive in the wild due to life threatening injuries. The NBSTCC is honored to provide a safe haven and forever home for these threatened and endangered species. Once visitors meet our residential sea turtle they are invited to tour our brand new interpretive center. The interpretive center has been carefully designed with a family focus so explorers of all ages can learn in a hands on manner. Our goal is to influence visitors to adopt behaviors that help protect sea turtles, their coastal habitats and resources.
