Turtle Trash Collector HandbookBecome a Turtle Trash Collector

Are you ready to save sea turtles by collecting trash in your local park, neighborhood, or beach?

Sign up today for our Turtle Trash Collector badging program!

When you sign up, you will receive your Turtle Trash Collector Handbook, which will help you identify what kinds of debris to collect for each badge, where you might find it, and how to collect the debris safely. Follow us on Facebook to find out about public clean-up events to help you earn your badges!

Note: This program is designed for upper elementary students in Southeastern NC. Anyone can sign up to participate, but we encourage you to attend one of our public virtual programs to learn more about how marine debris can impact sea turtles.
