The Sea Shepherd Jacksonville Chapter has been growing strong since March of 2012, and sharing our commitment to ocean conservation throughout the Northern Florida and Southern Georgia Region.  Our chapter has the privilege of being in a location that contains the only Right Whale Calving grounds on the east coast as well as numerous turtle nesting areas.  For this reason we are dedicated to keeping our beaches clean and educating those in the area to protect and love our oceans.

Our chapter is always looking for passionate, dedicated and dependable ocean advocates to assist with awareness events.  We participate in over 20 events throughout the year and have a great time at each one.  If you are interested in joining our crew please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
