Adopt A Turtle Nest
Protect the Nest
Clearwater Marine Aquarium’s Protect the Nest Program is a program that allows an individual, group, or business to symbolically adopt a sea turtle nest in CMA’s survey area (Clearwater – Treasure Island) during the sea turtle nesting season (May – October).
The program is currently closed due to the season winding down, but it will be open again prior to the start of the 2023 season. You can checkout their website to make a donation of any amount. Their site will also have additional information on adopting a see turtle nest. Click on the box to the right to be taken to the direct website. On the right is an image of the plaque for the turtles nest that you can purchase. The plaque can be personalized with names, or a short message that will be placed in the center of the circle on the turtle. Above is an image of what the plaque will look like when applied to the nest. You will receive the personalized plaque at the end of the season as a keep sake! It is important to note here that the conservation will not be able to disclose the exact location of the nest site due to Florida law, but they will send a photo of the nest with the plaque applied, much like the one pictured above.
