The membership badge of the Gilbert and Ellice Scout Association featured a sea turtle, a symbol in use since the Ellice Islands were a colonial branch of The Scout Association.

Scouting in Tuvalu was first introduced in 1914, while known as the Gilbert and Ellice Islands. Scouting operated as branch of the Scout Association (UK) in the early years. The Gilbert and Ellice Scout Association was founded in 1927, and joined the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1933. The Gilbert and Ellice Islands were separated administratively in the 1970s to become the independent Commonwealth nations of Tuvalu and Kiribati, and their Scouting movements took different paths.

The Scout Association of Tuvalu was founded in 1975 again as a branch of the British Scout association, but fell dormant in 1979. Scouting in Tuvalu was revived in 2004. The association had about 450 members in 2004.[1]
