Much thanks to all our nest sponsors. Your sponsorship makes it possible for us to save nesting mother sea turtles and their hatchlings. Traditional nest sponsorships, Lights Out and Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital (KBSTH) are now open. The Lights Out and KBSTH are non-refundable donations as the OIBSTPO uses these funds to purchase sea turtle safe light fixtures and direct fuds to the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital.
We will update this page as allowed by the NC Wildlife Commission. Covid guidelines are still in place limiting the information we publish. Unfortunately, this means we no longer share the address of verified nests or when nests are showing signs of emergence.
We are able share nest information when a nest is verified and when a nest is closed. Just like you, we hope these restrictions end in 2023. If you are interested in sponsoring a nest, please print and mail or email the 2023 Nest Sponsorship form.
Much thanks to our 2023 Nest Sponsors. You can view our list using the link below. The NC Wildlife Commission only allows us to share the nest name, sponsor, if it has been verified and when it closes. We will do our best to update the list as often as we are able. Please keep in mind that nesting season is our busiest time of the year, this list will be updated as quickly as possible.
