How You Can Help
Participate in our conservation efforts by reporting sightings of sea turtles in and around coastal British Columbian waters. This helps us learn how many are here and what they're doing. If you see a sea turtle in or around B.C. waters, please send us a report. You can now report online or call our toll-free sightings phone line: 1-866-I-SAW-ONE (1-866-472-9663).
The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is another great way to get involved. Garbage, if left alone, can wash into the ocean and severely injure turtles and other marine life. Leatherback turtles often ingest plastic and other debris mistaken for prey. Cleaning up garbage before it gets into the ocean will keep the turtle's habitat safer.
