During the summer, four different species of sea turtles feed off our shores: Green Sea Turtle, Loggerhead Sea Turtle, Leatherback Sea Turtle, and Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtle. All are either threatened or endangered. Sadly, every fall, turtles that don’t head south soon enough can become “cold stunned” and unable to recover without help if water temperatures drop quickly.

Learn about the fascinating biology of sea turtles, how to tell our four species apart, how to tell if a sea turtle is in trouble, and how to report it.
