“No matter the size of the donation (all are appreciated), the funds are used to continue the work of finding and protecting the sea turtle nests and ensuring that the hatchlings have a chance to get to the water. We use screen wire to protect the nest from predators, wood stakes to tape off the nest area and material to place a tarp around the nest when hatching is imminent.
Education is critical for us to spread the word to residents and visitors that they have a stake in helping us reach our goal. Public outreach is necessary.”
