Sea Turtle Tracking: Active Sea Turtles

**SCAM ALERT!** If you came to this page from Wildlife Collections, that’s great! If not, we wanted to warn you about companies operating under a variety of names are selling products online and illegally using STC’s tracked turtles as a perk to buyers. If you have been offered a STC tracked turtle by purchasing something from Ocean Project.co (not to be confused with ‘The Ocean Project‘), Turtle’s Journey, Wildlife Team, Wildlife Mission, Wildlife Charm, or Ocean Better, they have used Sea Turtle Conservancy’s turtle tracking information without our permission. The one exception is “Wildlife Collections,” which has an exclusive partnership with STC involving our tracked turtles. Learn more by clicking here.
