Get Involved to help protect marine turtles

Help Build ShellBank

For ShellBank to work, the database needs to grow.

ShellBank collaborations are key to rapidly
expanding and improving the reference databases.
Without this knowledge, ShellBank will not work.

ShellBank initially focussed on hawksbill turtles in the Asia-Pacific region. To date, genetic data gaps still remain for hawksbill turtles in this region with only 7 genetic stocks assigned. We are now expanding globally and will include green and leatherback turtles. To do so will require significant contributions to help build the global database.

We're seeking collaborators and partners:

  • Researchers or academics working on marine turtles
  • Labs that process trade seizures
  • Government agencies working on turtles or enforcing turtle protection
  • Wildlife rescue groups
  • Citizen science groups
  • Conservation organisations
