Dive Shops For Turtles

Sea turtles are one of the top draws for divers around the world. Not only are these charismatic reptiles fun to watch, they are also critical for the health of the ocean. Sea turtles help keep coral reefs and seagrass beds healthy, keep jellyfish numbers under control, and more.

Our partner dive shops help protect sea turtles by supporting conservation efforts and educating divers about the turtleshell trade and other threats to sea turtles. From avoiding products made from turtleshell, diving in a way that doesn’t hurt reefs or turtles, and supporting important nesting beaches, divers are making a difference for endangered sea turtles.
