Please select which nesting sea turtle you would like to adopt:
I acknowledge that my adoption is symbolic and will not include direct handling, feeding, or viewing of nesting or hatchling sea turtles. I understand that sea turtles are wild animals and that the Georgia Sea Turtle Center cannot guarantee my sea turtle will return to nest. As an Adoptive Parent, I understand that I will receive an electronic certificate package and monthly email updates that allow me to follow my sea turtle's nesting journey from afar.
*If purchasing as a gift, please read the information below under the "Detail" tab for processing information
Quantity must be 1 or more

 

What's included in the Adopt-a-Nesting Turtle Package?*

  • Personalized Certificate of Adoption (electronic)
  • Letter about the Jekyll Island Sea Turtle Project
  • Loggerhead sea turtle fact sheet
  • Monthly email updates about your turtle's nesting activity and nest success during the 2021 Sea Turtle Season
         Regular updates will likely conclude in August or September 2021, depending on nesting turtle activity
  • A summary of the 2021 sea turtle nesting season on Jekyll Island will be emailed after the last nest has hatched (usually in October)
  • Email notice of all public GSTC release dates within the adoption period when available (Release dates are subject to change without any notice at any time) 

Sea turtles are wild animals. We cannot guarantee that nesting turtles will return to lay additional nests in 2021, nor can we guarantee that their nests will hatch. 

*Allow 1-2 weeks for processing

    To Symbolically Adopt a Nesting 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. Note: We will not delay processing packages for holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, or other gifts. Here's our suggestion for keeping it a surprise: 

      • Fill in the gift recipient's name in the box that says, "Name on Certificate."
      • Write in your email address in the "Recipient Email Address" box. This will ensure that you receive adoption emails and not the gift recipient.
      • After you have gifted the adoption, email us at gstceducation@jekyllisland.com to request that we change the email address to the gift recipient.
