2023-2024 Decal: "Healthy Sea Turtles and Healthy Habitats"

2023-2024 sea turtle decal by Mike Hunter, FWC

This year’s sea turtle decal is an awareness reminder that sea turtles need healthy habitats to thrive. Florida’s sandy beaches, as well as coastal and offshore waters, provide vital habitat for five species of threatened and endangered sea turtles. From tiny hatchlings to huge adults, all sea turtles need clean, undisturbed habitats to survive.

The decal’s conservation message focuses on keeping beaches clean and free of human debris and recreational equipment that can create life-threatening obstacles for nesting females and hatchlings on the beach. Keeping beaches dark helps ensure that adults and hatchlings aren’t disoriented, leading them away from the water and into harmful situations.

Your actions and support benefits Florida’s sea turtle conservation efforts.

Thank you!
