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
