What does it mean to adopt a nest?

A symbolic nest adoption in the name of your choice is a great way to show your support for sea turtle conservation, and is a unique gift for the environmentalist in your life. You may request a general location where you would like your nest to be, but where it ends up depends on the cooperation of the turtles. If there is a beach renourishment project in that area it may also impact where the nests are located. We do our best to assign one as near to your requested area as possible, or you can let us choose one for you. A laminated sign with the adopter's name is prominently posted on the nest itself.

Each nest adoption is acknowledged with a letter via postal mail and includes a BSTP window decal, the location of the nest, and a link where you can later view the hatch success results after we have completed the evaluation.

We begin assigning nests in June after the turtles have deposited a nice selection. Adoption requests received by August 15 will be assigned in the current year. Adoption requests received after August 15 may be rolled over to the following season.
