Nest count 7/21/2014: 48
Adoption count: 22
we need your support.
The Supporter’s group is requesting a tax-deductible donation of $25 to “adopt” a specific sea turtle nest. This donation applies to one nest per nesting season. Donors will receive an “adoption certificate”, a photo of the nest, and a complete activity report at the end of the nesting season. All donors will be recognized in the Supporter’s newsletter. The $25 donation will help pay for the cost of the wire cages, supplies, and fuel for the patrol vehicles. Your support of this project will be greatly appreciated by the mother sea turtles, volunteers, staff, and sea turtle lovers everywhere!
To participate, please send your donation of $25 to:
Supporters of St. Vincent
PO Box 1073
Eastpoint, FL 32328
Include the name and address of the "adoptor" to put on the Certificate and a name for the mother turtle, if desired.
