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.

5% of sales 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.”

These are the best!

I love the beach but can’t take the sun so long sleeve and long pant bathing suits are essential. I’ve owned many and these are by far the best. I ordered the mantis shrimp and loved them so much I went back and ordered more for myself and ordered a pair for my daughter. They are well made, comfortable, quick drying and very flattering. The patterns are also super unique. I will definitely be placing another order.

High Quality

These are a tick material that feels great. A little long for short legs but otherwise 5stars!

Love it!

I was unsure on sizing and they assisted me in picking the right size when I emailed. I love that it has pockets and the matching top is supportive.

Turtle leggings

So much fun!

Good and warm

They look great, though I wish I had ordered 1 size up. I wore them paddling on a cold day and they were just the thing!
