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.
2020-2021 Decal: "Stash the Trash to Protect Sea Turtles"
This year’s sea turtle decal features a loggerhead hatchling and focuses on the human impact challenges that sea turtles endure for survival. From hatchling emergence through years of growth to breeding adults, sea turtles often mistake bits of plastic as food or may get entangled in discarded fishing line, balloon streamers or nets. You can help sea turtles survive by stashing your trash. Either individually or as part of a group event, pick up trash or debris near shorelines or coastal waterways to give sea turtles and other marine animals a better chance of survival in these areas. Thank you for supporting Florida’s sea turtle research and conservation efforts.
