We are the Cayman Turtle Conservation and Education Centre.
Global innovators, Sea Turtle Savers, Conservation Experts. That’s who we are. We are the oldest organization in the world breeding endangered Green Sea turtles for the purposes of conservation. The Centre takes no turtles or eggs from the wild since the original founder stock was collected in the 1970’s, but rather has been uniquely successful in achieving more than two generations of captive breeding and rearing of sea turtles. This was a “first ever in the world”.
We are Saving Tomorrow’s Turtles Today…Since 1968!
Help Us Save Endangered Turtles Today!
There are so many ways to participate in marine conservation efforts. Click here for a list of partners and ways you can help, from taking the 345 Plastic pledge to learning more about why straws and recreational balloons are bad for our oceans.
We have student, individual and corporate membership packages. It’s so easy to support marine conservation. If you are an employer, you can give your employees some great perks at the same time and feel good about what you’re doing at the same time. Win. Win!
