Turtle Trek Toolkit

Get ready to run! Thank you for participating in Turtle Trek 5K! Your support helps us care for sick and injured sea turtles in the Sea Turtle Care Center™, with the goal of rehabilitating each patient so they can make the journey home. Want to deepen your impact? Start by learning about the three sea turtle species we treat most at the Care Center by watching the videos below:

Species Spotlight: Loggerhead
Species Spotlight: Green
Species Spotlight: Kemp’s Ridley

Now, select your favorite species to run for and start your fundraising page using the steps below! No matter your favorite species, all funds will go directly to the Sea Turtle Care Center to continue our rescue, rehabilitation and release efforts.
