Through your generous donation, you become a member of the Beaches Sea Turtle Patrol community. All members receive our annual newsletter and a window decal to proudly display. Members who symbolically adopt a nest(s) are given the option to have a name (business, gift recipient, or your own) affixed to a nest in our area. 100% of your contributions go to protecting and preserving sea turtles who call our beaches home.

- Loggerhead ( up to 1 symbolically adopted nest): $75
- Green (up to 2 symbolically adopted nests): $100

All donations are tax-deductible and may be eligible for a matching amount from your employer. To learn more about how you can give to BSTP, please visit our Donate page.
The application period for the 2022 season is now closed. Thank you for your interest. Please check back in January 2023 for updates.
