Save Manatees, Sea Turtles, and Right Whales
Sea2Shore is a Florida-based 501(c)(3) founded by world-renowned manatee expert Dr. James “Buddy” Powell.
We work to protect and conserve our world’s fragile coastal ecosystems and the endangered species that call them home.
Our project areas are broad but they all focus on one of three key species: manatees, sea turtles and right whales. Our research specialties range from satellite tagging and tracking of rehabilitated manatees to teaching coastal residents simple activities that protect nesting sea turtles and their hatchlings to broad scale assessment of critical marine habitats.
We work in the Southeastern U.S., Belize, Cuba, and West Africa.
Sea2Shore combines the technical expertise of trained ecologists and biologists with the passion and enthusiasm of citizen volunteers to educate the public, protect endangered species and conserve our coastal environments.
