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 Conservation Commission (FWC) Marine Research Institute at 561-575-5407, or to the FWC Law Enforcement at 888-404-FWCC.

Help sea turtles every time you drive. Please visit  to get information on how to get your sea turtle license plate if you are in the Stuart, Jupiter, North Palm, Delray, Boca to Weston areas.
