You may be eligible to submit an application for a newly established Sea Turtle Foundation Research Grant.

About the grant

Sea Turtle Foundation is dedicated to supporting conservation efforts to ensure that there are “Turtles for Tomorrow”.

Our organisation focuses on three key areas; Research, Education and Action. By supporting practical research projects, we hope to support the creation of a catalyst for change, greater understanding and increased awareness where it is needed…...in sea turtle conservation.
