The Sea Turtle Preservation Society, a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to helping sea turtles survive, introduces their new marketing and public relations team, bringing their important message to a world-wide audience.
STPS’ mission to protect both sea turtles and their environment is an important one, and as residents of Orlando, it affects us all. Our state is home to a 72-mile long coastline critical to sea turtles, as over 50% of sea turtle around the world travel here for nesting, and human interaction can create a global problem for the survival of the species. For this reason, it’s important to communicate these dangers not just to locals, but to a world-wide audience. Getting STPS’ message out there is imperative, and their new Marketing and PR team strives to get likeminded people around the world involved in protecting sea turtles’ most valuable resource.
The Sea Turtle Preservation Society’s Marketing and Public Relations team is headed by Eric Needle, founder of GreenOrlando, GreenBrevard, and Longbow.net, a marketing agency based in Melbourne, Florida. STPS has been featured prominently on our site in the past, and their efforts were even an inspiration for our creation.
Joining the team is Bill Sokolic, an experienced journalist with bylines in daily, weekly, and monthly publications, as well as wire services like Reuters and the Associated Press. He writes on a variety of subjects such as the environment, business, entertainment, tourism, and local news.
A recent UCF graduate, Ryan Needle is a copywriter for Longbow.net and editor for our site. He writes on topics such as sustainability and greenbuilding.
Sheila Harnois is a writer and media coordinator for STPS.
The Sea Turtle Preservation Society is dedicated to protecting sea turtles and keeping our local environment sustainable. They organize efforts to assist injured turtles, manage beach cleanups, and raise awareness of the dangers sea turtles face. Educating the public is a primary concern for them, and every year, the group works to reach thousands of people though presentations, public exhibits, turtle watches, and The Turtle Krawl, Brevard’s biggest 5k run.
