Adopt A Nest
Eastman Environmental is managing a sea turtle nest adoption program with the beginning of the 2014 nesting season. The Sea Turtle Nesting Program is a volunteer-based effort to monitor and evaluate sea turtle nests on St Johns County beaches. Your support will enable these volunteers to have the necessary supplies and equipment to conduct the monitoring and to report the findings for sea turtle research nationwide.
Adoptions will be at three (3) different levels.
Level 1: donation of $50 entitles the adoptee to receive regular reports on the progress of a specified nest.
Level 2: donation of $100 entitles the adoptee to have their name placed on the nest and to receive photos of the nest progress.
Level 3: donation of $250 entitles the adoptee to level 2 benefits plus an invitation for up to five people to witness an evening nest evaluation with a marine turtle specialist (done in late summer months during the evening). Adoptee will be notified of evaluation date at least 2 weeks in advance.
