Responsible Pier Initiative 2013-2018

Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s Responsible Pier Initiative (RPI) was developed as a collaborative program to work directly with recreational anglers on fishing piers. The purpose of these efforts is to provide first responders on piers with the necessary training and resources to respond effectively to sea turtle injuries or stranding on or around fishing piers.

Since 2013, The Responsible Pier Initiative is responsible for the successful rescue of over 547 sea turtles and the removal of over 18,000 lbs of marine debris.

 

Thank you to all of our Responsible Pier Initiative partners for their hard work and dedication to sea turtle conservation!!
