ADOPT A SEA TURTLE PROGRAM
Make a Difference
In 2021, a record 78 nests were adopted, 171 nests were identified and protected against predation, resulting in 8,105 emerged hatchlings!
Interns and volunteers patrol beaches every morning from May 1 through the end of August with support from Reserve staff to identify nests and install protective cages. Once the eggs hatch, the turtle team will return to remove the cages, excavate the nests and count the empty shells to determine hatchling numbers.
