I am very taken aback by the comment listed prior to this. I have been a donor to Turtle Island since its inception. I have known of Todd's work since he was at Earth Island and spear headed the campaign (which we live and are thankful for still today) to put Dolphin safe criteria on tuna cans all over America.
It is because of his efforts and long lived focus for environmental stewardship, that I have followed his campaigns till today and appreciate all that he continues to do.
I believe Todd and his staff and board have done amazing work since starting Turtle island. A Goldman
Prize for an affiliate and consistent coverage on a national scale, can only support what I write.
He runs a formidable organization, and works tirelessly to push for sustainable conservation goals.
This is a great organizaton staffed by a few passionate people, intent on saving this magnificent species. They combine strong science with political courage and action. I have worked with them for over a year and their work continues to inspire me. Wish I had more time to dedicate to their important work.
I have had a wonderful experience working with STRP. I have been working with them since February 2010 at their main office in West Marin and have also worked with them getting petitions signed at the University of California at Berkeley. Everyone at STRP is focused and passionate about saving the sea turtles, not just for the sea turtles well being but for the health of our planet and the people who live on it.
I like the easiness of petition signing thru the internet. When an action/petition needs to be done, I can sign it, and have my voice heard, almost instantly. I can broadcast the action done by STRP thru Facebook, and then onto my friends. I also like being updated about their campaigns around the world.
Fantastic! I loved being involved with a group that has such a fantastic history of successes. Todd, Teri, Erica, Maeve, Madeline, Carol and the crew really care deeply about the worlds' sea turtles and it was very rewarding to volunteer with them.
I have donated to this organization since its inception in 1989, and have felt very satisified with their use of funds. The Sea Turtle Restoration Network, has done an excellent job of outreaching to the public, and educating people through frequent newsletters and an extremely informative website.
The Sea Turtle Restoration Project is a unique place that enables people concerned about sea turtles and the oceans to turn their passion and activism into real world results that transform fishing practices and policies and save the lives of animals. One of STRP's greatest strengths is its ability to be flexible in responding to emerging problems worldwide without a lot of bureaucracy to work through. STRP is a great example of a small, no frills nonprofit that gets a lot done for a little money.
Very rewarding. The project is of tremendous urgency. With the use of current fishing practices on an ever insupportable scale, the oceans have become a veritable minefield for turtles. I was amazed how readily young adults on the Cal Berkeley campus understood the danger of the leatherbacks becoming extinct in the near future, that their children most likely will no longer know them in their natural habitat. It was an eye-opener for all who listened how limited/small the protected feeding grounds are and what the effects of the use of gill nets and longline fishing are. I found the public enthusiastically endorsing the efforts of the Sea Turtle Restoration Psroject before it is too late.
I have supported this organization since its birth. If you have any money to give, Sea Turtle Restoration Project will give you the most bang for your buck. I donate monthly knowing my money is being put to good use. Sea Turtle Restoration Project has a long history of great wins for the sea turtles, the health of the oceans and the planet. It's easy to be part of this nonprofit and feel like you are making a meaningful contribution to the betterment of the planet. With STRP you will see your donations in action.... it's a good feeling.
a year ago, i wrote a letter concerning the pollution in the ocean. i wanted to help the sea animals and what i did was make a petition.
I believe on putting my money and/or my time where my mouth is. Because of that, I support this group by donating money when I can, by signing their petitions, and by spreading the word of their good works. Plain and simple: sea turtles need our help.
