One way for Florida residents to support sea turtle conservation is to purchase a sea turtle specialty license plate. Proceeds from the specialty license plates help fund the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Marine Turtle Protection Program.

Florida is a key location for endangered and threatened sea turtles of the world.  Sea turtles nest on our Florida shores and forage for food in our estuaries. Five species of turtles are found nesting on Florida beaches and protected by Florida state statutes.  Illegal harvesting, habitat encroachment, pollution, and hazardous boating are some of the things sea turtles fight to survive.

If you ever encounter an injured or dead sea turtle, please report it to Florida Fish and Wildlife

Juno Beach Pier
The fishing this year in South Florida has been so plentiful and outstanding with anglers catching a variety of different species very consistently all year along.
