Last minute gift idea – Turtle adoption!

Searching for that last minute gift for someone who loves nature and animals? Consider adopting a nesting leatherback turtle (you get to name her!), or a nest of leatherback hatchlings! You’ll get a certificate that you can print at home (in time for Christmas), and regular updates on your turtle or nest as below. All donations are tax-deductible (a gift for you!).

For a $100 donation to The Ocean Foundation, you can name a nesting turtle. You’ll receive an adoption certificate by Christmas, and in the New Year we’ll send you a leatherback T-shirt, a sticker, a notification each time your turtle nests and a summary at the end of the season with her stats (# of nests, dates seen, etc.). To name a turtle, go to the following link, enter your information, and in the Comments box, add the turtle name you’d like and the person you are adopting her for. Name your turtle for 2018!

For a $50 donation, you can adopt a nest.

To adopt a nest, go to the following link and enter your information. In the Comment box, please mention that you are adopting a nest and who it is for. Adopt a nest here for 2018!
