Turtle Island Restoration Network (TIRN)
Moving closer to the beach has made me pay more attention to the environment and discover organizations and causes that I cannot wait to share with you all!
I am a big advocate for sustainable living, regenerative farming/gardening/agriculture, and doing everything I can to ensure that I leave as little footprint as possible and care for our beautiful planet. I hope that by sharing what I know and helping educate those around me, I will encourage others to do the same.
Today I want to discuss Turtle Island Restoration Network (TIRN) in Galveston, Texas.
For 30 years, TIRN has been a leading advocate for the world’s oceans and marine wildlife. Their work is based on science, fueled by people who care, and effective at catalyzing long-lasting positive change that protects green sea turtles, whale sharks, and coho salmon.
By working with people and being involved in communities, TIRN preserves and restores critical habitats like the redwood-forested creekbanks of California to the biodiverse waters of Cocos Island. This mission involves educating communities through grassroots empowerment, consumer action, strategic litigation, hands-on restoration, environmental education, and promoting sustainable local, national, and international marine policies. In other words, they tackle it ALL!
By doing all this, their mission is to mobilize people in local communities worldwide to protect marine wildlife, the oceans, and inland watersheds that sustain them. Their work is accomplished by thousands of supporters, volunteers, and pro bono professionals, who help extend their global network.
