For the next two weeks, become connected to what was created this summer by our VIPs (Volunteer Internship Program). Each of the seven videos in this series will express different aspects of our work with a passion for the conservation of our ancient mariners and their critical habitats. Sea turtle conservation on an urban nesting beach like Broward County requires a serious commitment to their protection. Embrace the messages in these very creative and inspirational videography projects.

FIRE DEPT. HELPS RESCUE HATCHLINGS IN STORM DRAINS

This incident is both happy and sad at the same time. The good deeds of our volunteers losing sleep to save these endangered green sea turtle that would have never be rescued if our staff members Holly and Doug had not been in the area doing recon for unmarked nests just like this one. Holly and Doug were assisted by the kindness of Fire Company 13 and were able to locate five hatchlings alive in the storm drains on A1A.

The hatchlings were each named after the students of the class.

THANK YOU SEA TURTLE HATCHLING RESCUE VOLUNTEERS!

A season recap video to thank all of the sea turtle hatchling rescue volunteers who give their hearts each summer to document and rescue disoriented sea turtle hatchlings in Broward County Florida caused by illegal lighting. Since STOP was founded in 2007 we have rescued over 100,000 hatchlings! 40% of hatchlings we witness come up from the sand go to city lights instead of the sea. This is far too many to be sustainable in our opinion.
