Working to Protect our Oceans and Beaches and please remember, There is no Green without Blue.
Ever since I was a little girl, Jacques Cousteau has been my hero and as a child taught me so many things. Jacques-Yves Cousteau was a French naval officer, explorer, conservationist, filmmaker, innovator, scientist, photographer, author and researcher who studied the sea and all forms of life in water.
I hope while you are enjoying the beaches that you will take the time to protect them and the creatures in the sea.
The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever. – Jacques Cousteau

To achieve its mission, the Sea Turtle Conservancy uses research, habitat protection, public education, community outreach, networking and advocacy as its basic tools.
