ADOPT A SEA TURTLE NEST
Make a Difference
In 2020, 60 nests were adopted, 142 nests were identified and protected against predation, resulting in 7,122 emerged hatchlings!
In 2021, our goal is to adopt 75 nests in order to support additional interns needed for the upcoming turtle season. Every contribution makes a difference!
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.
