Each May, we begin carefully watching our leatherback nests for signs of hatching. You can adopt your very own nest for $50! We will send you a personalized certificate that you can print, a project sticker, updates on when your nest hatches, how many hatchlings emerged, and who the mother turtle was. Your support helps with our volunteer research assistants. These adoptions make a thoughtful gift for the animal lover in your life! Read more here – Adopt a nest – how you can help!
The St. Croix Leatherback Project is supported by the Sea Turtle Census Initiative, which is sponsored by The Ocean Foundation, which is a 501(c)(3) organization, based in Washington, D.C., but working globally to protect our oceans.
