Nest Sponsorship Information

As of January 19, 2018

Nest adoptions for 2018 are CLOSED.

If we are lucky enough to get more than 29 nests on OIB, we will reopen nest adoptions this summer.

Updates will be posted on this page as well as our Facebook page. Please check back with us during nesting season May 1-August 31, 2018.

As always, First in-First Out rule applies.

Each summer we invite donors to sponsor a sea turtle nest. Nest Sponsorship is $100 per nest and available on a first come first serve basis. As the sponsor of a nest, you have the honor of naming the nest. This name along with the name of the sponsors will be listed on our 2018 Nests link on our website. Thank you for your support, you help us save sea turtles with this contribution.

We are able to accept sponsorship’s of up to 25 nests. If we are lucky enough to get more that 25 nests, we will reopen nest sponsorship’s as the nests are verified.

Please mail sponsorship checks to

Ocean Isle Beach Sea Turtle Protection Organization (OIBSTPO)

P.O. Box 6524
