Advocate Apparel Inspired by the green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas)

A solitary species that rarely interacts with others outside of mating rituals, sea turtles struggle to survive from the day they hatch out of their egg. Sea turtle mortality rates are depressingly high, about 99% of juveniles will meet their demise before reaching sexual maturity.

6 out of the 7 species of sea turtles are listed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as either vulnerable or critically endangered. Marine turtles are threatened by pollution, marine plastics and debris, climate change, boat strikes, poaching and bycatch, and habitat loss.

10% of profits from your purchase of this product are donated to The Florida State University Marine Turtle Research, Ecology and Conservation Group

“Waterlust support allows our lab to collect biological and ecological data on sea turtles both at their foraging and nesting areas, to inform their management and conservation.”

Waterlust!

Thus far, I wholeheartedly endorse Waterlust--its business model, outreach, designs, packaging, etc. Want/need more and more niche businesses like it. Have ordered three pairs of board shorts (lionfish, whale shark, and, here, sea turtle), as well as the parrotfish bottle. The trunks all arrived promptly, are well printed and unique, and fit well/true to size (not giant American vanity sizing or European miniaturization)--good for walking, swimming, boating, whatever. Great business and products.
