The Sea Turtle Conservancy seeks to ensure the survival of sea turtles within the Caribbean, Atlantic and Pacific through research, education, training, advocacy and protection of the natural habitats upon which they depend. STC's research and conservation initiatives have focused on saving the Caribbean green sea turtle from immediate extinction, as well as advocating for the protection of sea turtles across the globe. Formerly the Caribbean Conservation Corporation, STC is the world's oldest sea turtle research and conservation group. Founded in 1959 to save sea turtles from eminent extinction through rigorous science-based conservation, the organization began its work in Costa Rica, but has expanded its research and conservation efforts throughout Central America and the wider Caribbean.
