Did you know that you can adopt a nesting leatherback and name her after someone you love?! We’ll send you a personalized certificate, a leatherback project t-shirt and sticker, and updates when your turtle nests during the season. Then at the end of the year, we’ll post a summary of her nests (here’s a listing of our turtles from the past two years).
Best of all, your donation is tax deductible and there is plenty of time to get your certificate for the holidays. This is one of our most popular gifts – last year every one of our 24 individual turtles was adopted and named! Save your name before the season even starts! Name your turtle here!
The St. Croix Leatherback Project is supported by the Sea Turtle Census Initiative, which is sponsored by The Ocean Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, based in Washington, D.C., working globally to protect our oceans.
