NOTICE: In response to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, STR’s Board of Directors has placed Sea Turtle Recovery under an “Emergency Operations” declaration. During this time, patient care is our priority.


UPDATE: We are working toward returning to normal operations. Fundraising events are being scheduled. Please check the Events page for updates. We are also  opening a limited number of Internship opportunities. Volunteer opportunities and Education programs are still suspended and are not accepting invitations or applications at this time.


This is a difficult time for all of us. STR is hoping that you may be able to consider a donation to help during this hard time. We thank you for your continued support. Please stay well!

Clubs or OrganizationsSTR Presentation 2.jpg

We currently offer both adult and children presentations for free in Essex County.  To help alleviate travel costs, a $50 donation is requested for groups and clubs that we must travel outside of Essex County to reach.

Please tell us your club or organizations age, time allowed, and number of people, and we will design a presentation just for you.


We are currently offering school presentations and games free of charge.  However, being a nonprofit, we ask the schools to consider donating to our cause.


Change Drive:  Have students and teachers bring in their change to donate.

Dress Down or Pajama Day:  Teachers can work with their administration to create a day where, if they submit a donation, can come to school in dress down or pajama attire.

Gift Card Drive:  Send a note home to parents asking for five dollar gift cards to Wawa (used for gas/travel), Staples (for educational materials and office materials), CVS or Home Depot.


Please tell us the time allowed, age group, and number of students, and we will design a presentation and possible game for your group!
