2021-2022 Decal: "Oceanic Wanderer"
This year’s sea turtle decal highlights Leatherback sea turtles as the true oceanic travelers in the sea turtle world. Leatherbacks undertake the longest migrations between breeding and feeding areas of any sea turtle, some averaging 3,700 miles each way. All age classes feed on a variety of jellyfish that float freely in the deep blue ocean waters.
The decal’s conservation message focuses on keeping plastics out of both offshore and inshore coastal waters. Leatherbacks that mistake translucent plastic bags and latex balloons for their jellyfish prey may suffer serious injury and even death.
Your actions and support benefits Florida’s sea turtle conservation efforts. Thank you.
