Sea Turtle Decals
You can help protect Florida's endangered and threatened marine turtles by making a donation to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Your donation will help fund research at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute and conservation efforts by the Imperiled Species Management Section. With each donation of five dollars or more, you will receive your choice of one of the waterproof decals featured. Current year marine turtle decals are available at Florida County Tax Offices.
FWC has a limited supply of some of the earlier decals. We would like to offer them to individuals who are interested in collecting them. Please indicate the decals you would like to obtain by checking the appropriate area on the order form and sending a check for the number of decals selected. The decals will be sent to you within 4-6 weeks.
2019-2020 Decal: "Keep On Swimming"
This year’s decal highlights the world's rarest sea turtle: the Kemp's ridley (Lepidochelys kempii). It is an endangered species, with only a few nesting in Florida each year. Once in Florida, Kemp's ridley sea turtles utilize coastal nearshore waters, shallow bays, and estuaries as important developmental and foraging habitats. Do your part to help the Kemp's ridley survive by keeping our waters free of plastics. Artwork by Ann Marie Tavares, FWC.
