Night of the Sea Turtle

Join The Explorers Club & The Sea Turtle Conservancy
as we celebrate all things Sea Turtle!

This special evening will support the Sea Turtle Conservancy's mission to raise awareness about this extraordinary marine animal and help The Explorers Club "tag" our very own TEC Sea Turtle! Once tagged, you'll be able to follow the turtle online and observe migratory habits, inspiring us to learn more about sea turtle biology, the threats they face, and ways you can help.

You'll have a chance to bid on an upcoming expedition tracking sea turtles in the Bahamas! Thanks to a generous donation from the Earthwatch Institute, one winner will spend nine days snorkeling and boating alongside hawksbill and green sea turtles exploring their habitats as part of a top notch research team. Earthwatch will be speaking about their mission to provide people with sustainable, environmental scientific field research and education opportunities all over the world.

We will also hear from David Godfrey, Executive Director of Sea Turtle Conservancy, and David Gruber, ECAD 2016 Keynote Speaker, National Geographic "Emerging Explorer" and marine biologist who discovered the first biofluorescent sea turtle. The evening will also include a silent auction with over 30 unique turtle inspired items, turtle-themed cocktails, specialty hor d'oeuvres, and a DJ set by New York's finest exploration themed band, the Swaai Boys!

This event is a partially run student initiative being spearheaded by local high school students, with proceeds from the evening funding a turtle tag - if additional funds are raised they will benefiting both the Sea Turtle Conservancy and TEC grants program.
