Sea Turtle Protection

Marine turtles are protected under the Federal Endangered Species Act of 1973 and Florida's Marine Turtle Protection Act (379.2431, Florida Statutes). Five species of marine turtles are found swimming in Florida's waters and nesting on Florida's beaches: Loggerhead, Green, Leatherback, Kemp's Ridley, and Hawksbill. 

The city of Treasure Island wants to help keep sea turtles and other marine life safe and thriving. You can do your part to help by simply following a few east steps when enjoying a day at the beach by visiting the city's Sea Turtle Protection Webpage.
