An Email Information Network for Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation

To improve communication among individuals around the world who are interested in sea turtle biology and conservation, the Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle Research at the University of Florida has established CTURTLE — a LISTSERV managed email network on the Internet. CTURTLE takes advantage of Internet technology to facilitate communication worldwide. Anyone who has access to an Internet email address can subscribe to CTURTLE. Participation in CTURTLE is free of charge.

Once you have subscribed, you can post messages/information to the CTURTLE email system that will electronically send your message/information to all other CTURTLE subscribers. The possibilities and benefits are enormous for information exchange. CTURTLE provides the opportunity to respond to conservation issues when time is a critical factor. When an ecological crisis involving sea turtles or their habitat occurs, you can inform the worldwide community instantly. CTURTLE is a forum for ideas, an avenue to announce job opportunities and volunteer programs, and a vehicle for discussion of research and conservation ideas or problems. The possibilities are limited only by the imagination of the participants. Please let us know if you have any suggestions. The success of CTURTLE depends on its members and their participation. The more people who subscribe, the greater the database of information.

  1. To subscribe from an Internet address, send an email message to with the one-line message: SUBSCRIBE CTURTLE (your first name) (your last name)
  2. To post information to all subscribers on the list, send an email message to
    Because submissions to CTURTLE are restricted to subscribers only, all submissions by subscribers must be made from the email address from which they subscribed.
  3. To get general information on LISTSERV commands, send an email message to with the one-line message: GET LISTSERV REFCARD

Note that you send only commands (for example SUBSCRIBE) to the address and that you send messages to be distributed to all subscribers to the address.

CTURTLE is managed by Alan B. Bolten, Karen A. Bjorndal, and Peter J. Eliazar at the Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle Research (University of Florida). If you experience difficulty connecting to CTURTLE, talk with your email manager or send an email message describing the problem to us at

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
