NOTICE: In response to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, STR’s Board of Directors has placed Sea Turtle Recovery under an “Emergency Operations” declaration. During this time, patient care is our priority.


UPDATE: We are working toward returning to normal operations. Fundraising events are being scheduled. Please check the Events page for updates. We are also  opening a limited number of Internship opportunities. Volunteer opportunities and Education programs are still suspended and are not accepting invitations or applications at this time.


This is a difficult time for all of us. STR is hoping that you may be able to consider a donation to help during this hard time. We thank you for your continued support. Please stay well!

Junior Volunteers/Programs

It is Sea Turtle Recovery’s strong desire to have several programs for children, and these programs are already designed and prepared!  Currently, funding limitations are preventing this initiative, and we are working hard to find a grant or funder to cover this expense.  We’re not giving up, but until this occurs, please see below for ways that you can help:


1)     Speak to your New Jersey based teacher or troop leader about collecting donations such as exam gloves, postage stamps, Home Depot gift cards, CVS gift cards, dawn dish soap, paper towel, sensitive skin laundry detergent, disinfecting wipes, and new or slightly used beach towels.  We can pick these up on a scheduled visit and give a program to your class!


2)    Recycle, throw away trash properly, and don’t release balloons into the air!  These three things are vital to ensure sea turtles survival, and you can help us every day by doing these tasks.


3)    Come to our World Sea Turtle Day Celebration!  This event is designed just for you.  We have sea turtle games, sea turtle displays, free face painting, and more all inside the Turtle Back Zoo.  This year’s event will be July 26th.
