Bye bye to 2018!

Before we roll on into 2019, we didn’t want to miss the chance to thank all our followers, donors, volunteers, and supporters! Our Twelve Days of Turtles was a massive success, and we raised over $3,200 toward our next season, which starts in March! Amazing!

We had several volunteers sign up, 17 turtles adopted for next year, nearly 1,000 likes of our Facebook page and a lot of interest in our program. We also made summary infographics for ALL our leatherbacks and posted them on our website – find your turtle here and read about her history! https://seaturtlecensus.com/the-turtles/

All the best for 2019! We have exciting things coming up! Happy New Year! #stxleatherbacks #stxturtles Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge Cottages by the Sea, St. Croix, US Virgin Islands National Save The Sea Turtle Foundation The Ocean Foundation Sea Turtle Census Initiative
