Sea Turtle Nest and Hatchling Adoptions
help fund the sea turtle patrols and nest conservation here on South Padre Island! Our organization manages the Kemp’s ridley sea turtle nest conservation for the US Fish & Wildlife Service. Each summer we patrol the island for nesting sea turtles and relocate the nests to a protective corral. The hatchlings are protected from high tide, predators and vehicle traffic and then are released as soon as they hatch.

Sea Turtle Resident Adoptions help to feed and medicate one of our 6 resident sea turtles.

Sea Turtle Patient Adoptions will go to helping us purchase medical supplies, veterinary exams, x-rays, food and general care for our rehab turtles.

We list all sea turtle sponsors below. Thank you for your support!
