These ancient creatures have been swimming our oceans for millions of years, and play essential roles in marine and coastal ecosystems. Yet all six species of sea turtles found in North American waters are endangered.
Your adoption supports our work to protect vital coastal nesting habitat for sea turtles, educate coastal homeowners about their impacts on sea turtles, and work in the courts to defend and enforce the laws that protect sea turtles.
All donations support our work to protect and restore the wildlife and wild places you care about.
Named "America's Best Wildlife Charity" by Reader's Digest, Defenders of Wildlife has been a leading innovator in developing the most effective ways to conserve imperiled wildlife and wild lands for over 65 years. Your adoption donation will immediately be put to use where it is most needed to achieve these goals.
