When you buy an STCB hat, you can look up your hat code below and learn about the sea turtle that shares your code. You can see the turtle’s data including:
- the date the turtle was tagged
- its species
- its weight and measurements (SCL max = size in cm; weight is in kg)
- its photo record
- where in Bonaire’s waters it was captured and released
- whether it has been recaptured since its initial tagging
Hats are available in jungle green, navy blue and off-white. All are 100% organic cotton. An adjustable strap makes these hats one-size-fits-all.

STCB’s sea turtle necklaces are the product of artisans on Costa Rica and Bonaire. Costa Rican artisans carve sea turtle pendants from bone, beach seed and horn. Thereby generating income alternative to the traditional but unsustainable harvest of sea turtles and their eggs in Costa Rica.
Bonaire artisans then use jeweler’s wire and natural fiber cord to craft the pendants into necklaces. Developing economic benefit from conservation tourism is another way that STCB and the community are working to build support for the protection of sea turtles.
These bone pendants are approximately 2 centimeters in diameter.
