Help our St. George Island Sea Turtles

About this Event

You can adopt a sea turtle nest on St. George Island for the 2021 nesting season! Your contribution helps the Friends of the Reserve meet the current needs of our sea turtle program which conducts daily beach patrols for nest monitoring, evaluations on hatch success, and provides care for hatchlings until they can be released. In order to adopt, just select the next available ticket date at the top right of the page, then click Tickets. The times and dates on the tickets are for bookkeeping purposes only and do not affect the adoption.

Nest adoption means you are an honorary sea turtle parent! The adoption includes:

  • Personalized adoption certificate sent to your email.
  • Certificates for memorial sponsorships will be posted on the sponsored nest.
  • You will receive an interactive map link where you can find your sponsored nest. Click on each nest on the map to see a picture!
  • A mention on the official SGI Volunteer Turtlers Facebook page.
  • An end of the season summary of how the island nests did during 2021.

If you sponsor a nest before April 30, 2021, you can receive a gift certificate for a special occasion such as a birthday, Easter, Mother's Day, etc.

In order to adopt, just select the next available ticket date at the top right of the page, then click Tickets. The times and dates on the tickets do not change the nest adoption. Knowing when you adopted the nest just helps us put your donation towards current needs as quickly as possible.

The only thing that you will be receiving immediately is an Eventbrite receipt. Our coordinator creates each gift note and certificate one-by-one in the order that the sponsorships are received. Nesting typically begins around mid-May, so it might be June or July before your sponsored nest is assigned.

*Please realize that you may never see your sponsored nest in person. High tide and storm events sometimes wash nests away. Coyotes are a problem on our island and they can destroy an entire nest. Thank you for understanding that these events are out of our control. You can see a picture of your nest on the map link that you'll receive via email. Thank you for your support!*

Friends of the Reserve is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization, so your donation is tax deductable!
