Adopt a Sea Turtle Nest

Join the Egmont Key Sea Turtle Survival Program!

Why Should I Adopt a Nest?
 
Because beach erosion and sea level rise create constant threats to nesting habitats, sea turtle nests need to be protected and monitored. By adopting a nest, you support educational programing and the Eckerd College interns who will protect, monitor, and collect nesting data during the nesting season.
 
To adopt a nest:
 
1) Download, print and fill out the Adopt a Nest Info Sheet .
 
2) Please scan the Adopt a Nest Info Sheet and send it back as an attachment to: Friends@TampaBayRefuges.org.
 
3) Click here to make your payment via Credit Card through our website.
Click the Donation tab and enter $100 for each nest you wish to adopt. We will see your payment and match to your form(s) when we get them.
 
Or, you can mail the form along with your $100 donation per nest to:
FTBWR, PO Box 40782, St Petersburg, FL 33743-0782.
 
In appreciation, you will receive a printable certificate via email and a wood turtle plaque once your nest has hatched. We will place the plaques in the Egmont Key Guard House monthly as we receive the adoptions and we will email you when your nest arrives.

Thanks so much for your support!
