Mission

SoCal Sea Turtles is dedicated to ensuring that every person on or near the water knows how to protect our local sea turtles from vessel strikes, accidental catch, and entanglement in debris. We accomplish this goal through targeted boater and fisher education and outreach through our website, social media, virtual and in-person events, as well as working with our partners at the US Navy, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and other public and private organizations working to protect California's sea turtles.

"SLOW for Sea Turtles" Reflective Aluminum Signs for Waterfront Homes and Businesses

Businesses and homeowners within a 1-hour drive of San Diego are invited to host a "SLOW for Sea Turtles" sign to help protect sea turtles from accidental boat strikes along the coast of Southern California. We install the sign at a time that is convenient for you and repair or replace it if it becomes damaged. To learn more about hosting a sign, please contact us!

SoCal Sea Turtles developed these stickers in partnership with NOAA to ensure that every person on the water has access to the NOAA Sea Turtle Stranding Hotline phone number.

Anyone in Southern California can request free stickers for their boat, tackle box, jet-ski, or kayak. ​SoCal residents: use the quick order form on our website to get your FREE NOAA Sea Turtle Stranding Hotline stickers today!
