Adopt-a-Nest at this Saturday’s OceanWise gala event! If you’re a turtle lover, and who isn’t, you might want to think about becoming a proud turtle parent! Supporting the Reserve’s Adopt-a-Nest program helps sponsor the research on marine turtles, while learning about their behavior and nest success.

Your generous donation will help fund:

  • Ongoing research on nesting density and trends of the Atlantic Green (Chelonia mydas), Leatherback (Dermochelys coriacea), and Loggerhead (Caretta caretta) marine turtles.
  • Satellite Tagging of marine turtles to detect foraging patterns and distance traveled.
  • A contribution of data to state, national, and international programs to help protect marine turtles.

You can become a Proud Turtle Parent at the $250 level or a Turtle Buddy at the $50 level. No matter which level you support, remember, adoptions are environmentally friendly! By supporting the Adopt-a-Nest program, you are helping these ancient creatures survive into the future!
