To Symbolically Adopt a Turtle as a Gift:

If you would like to purchase a Symbolic Adoption package as a gift, please fill in the order information boxes with the Gift Recipient's information. We will not delay processing packages for birthdays, anniversaries, or other gifts. Here is our suggestion for keeping it a surprise:

  1. Fill in the gift recipient's name in the box that says, "Name on Certificate."
  2. Write in your email address in the "Recipient Email Address" box. This will ensure that you receive adoption emails and not the eventual gift recipient. 
  3. After you have gifted the adoption, email us at to request that we change the email address associated with the adoption to the gift recipient's email address. 

About the Coffee Sea Turtles

Species: Kemp's ridley sea turtles
Sex: Unknown
Weight:  1.2 - 3.9 kg / 2.6 - 8.5 lbs
Arrival: November 22 - Present
Rescued By: Massachusetts Audubon Volunteers

Why We're Here: The Coffee Sea Turtles came to the hospital cold-stunned, like hypothermia. Each winter, some unlucky turtles get stuck in chilly waters and become stunned by the cold temperatures. Many cold-stunned sea turtles wash up along Cape Cod Bay in Massachusetts; however, sea turtles can also become cold-stunned along the Georgia coast.
