Sea turtles have complex biology and life histories, and without informed, factual knowledge of these systems, effective conservation is impossible. If we don't know where sea turtles breed and nest or where they feed, we cannot properly protect their habitats. If we don't know how pollution is affecting their physical health or how poaching affects their numbers, we cannot protect sea turtle populations from extinction.

To improve the conservation of sea turtles worldwide, Sea Turtles 911 has several ongoing research initiatives to expand the knowledge of sea turtles in the South China Sea. Up until now, very little biological sea turtle research has been conducted in this area, so every piece of information we discover is of crucial importance to the conservation of Green and Hawksbill sea turtles on Hainan Island.
