Volunteer with us – Each year we encourage volunteers to help us with nesting surveys, hatchling protection and education programs. Positions vary based on experience and interest. Some volunteers help by walking on a soft-sand beach for looking for turtles or recording tracks, while others help protect emerging hatchlings during the early evening hours. Please fill out this form to express your area of interest and to get on the list for volunteer meeting and training notifications.

Special note! If you are a St. Croix student (high school or college) and interested in wildlife, resource management or marine biology, let us know how we can help you fulfill your school requirements for graduation! You’ll also be able to gain valuable field experience, and sometimes we have paid summer job positions! Let us know your interests by filling out the form here.

We will hold periodic training sessions but may email for occasional help, for example beach cleanups. Thank you so much for your interest!
