This sea turtle sun suit by Waterlust was inspired by the patterns found on the green sea turtle, a spunky, yet mysterious vagabond of tropical and subtropical seas around the world. Sea turtles have roamed our oceans for more than 150 million years. Their lives are long and difficult, with only 1 in 1000 surviving to sexual maturity. Nearly all species of marine turtles are classified as Endangered, with 2 of the 7 species classified as Critically Endangered, according to IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Waterlust will donate 10% of profits from the sales of this sun suit to the Marine Turtle Research Ecology and Conservation Group at Florida State University, led by Dr. Mariana Fuentes. The donation will be used to collect biological, ecological and spatial data on sea turtles in the Big Bend of Florida, which will be used to design management practices that better protect these endangered species. It will also go towards increasing night monitoring of St. George Island, Florida that will help identify threats to turtles nesting there and identifying critical habitats.
