Sea Turtle Foundation was formed back in 2001 when a group of turtle biologists and concerned volunteers formed the 'Indo-Pacific Sea Turtle Conservation Group'. Their initial goal was to address research gaps and develop strategies to reduce threats to sea turtles in the north Queensland region.
Today it became a non-profit, non-government group based in Australia working to protect sea turtles through research, education and action. Sea Turtle Foundation is working to address threats that seat turtle face through rescuing stranded turtles in North Queensland, training others to respond to strandings, providing educational programs for schools and communities and supporting research into turtle health and ecology throughout the Indo-Pacific region.
