During the 2020 Covid-19 summer, our Youth Founders set out to create an organization to help their friends earn community services hours.
As native Floridians who have had the privilege of enjoying the environment, they decided to establish a community service network to educate their peers about the importance of ocean & marine life health. Since that time, they have recruited over 1,000 volunteers who have removed over 15,000 pounds of marine debris, issued over 8,000 hours of community service and have Ambassadors in schools and universities in over 40 schools in south Florida in addition to Maryland, North Carolina and Virginia. Apparel proceeds and donations are used to support marine life hospitals, rehabilitation centers and to purchase sea turtle nest protection materials.
Our mission is to provide a network of volunteer opportunities centered around ocean and marine life health. Once you become a member of the Turtle Team, we ask that you do your educated best to help keep all marine life healthy. Certificates for verified volunteer hours will be issued upon request. Proceeds from sales of our volunteer apparel and donations are used to support marine hospitals and rehabilitation centers in addition to sea turtle nest protection programs.
