Free Sea Turtle Posters
from the Sea Turtle Conservancy
The Florida Sea Turtle Life History Posters Project was funded by a grant from the Sea Turtle License Plate Program. This project involved the development and distribution of a life history poster for each of the five species of sea turtles found in Florida. A set of posters is being provided at no cost to Florida sea turtle groups, rehabilitation and educational facilities, schools, environmental centers, libraries, and other groups requesting the materials.
Each poster is 3’ tall by 2’ wide. If you would prefer to print out your own smaller version of the poster, please click here.
Please note: Currently, STC can only provide free shipping for one set of posters per Florida address. If a person at your school, group or center has already requested a set of posters, or if you are outside of the state of Florida, or if you would like more than one set of posters, you will need to pay for postage. You will be contacted via email and asked to provide payment information if postage is required.
Happy #Friday! There’s nothing common about this cuttlefish: the common cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis) uses its skin to communicate—flashing stripes and patches of color convey threats or courtship messages. We’ve raised generations of them at the Aquarium.

Not every story about sea life mistakenly caught in a net ends this beautifully, so it’s important to recognize when one does.
