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, "Recipient 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 Lil Diggity

Why Lil Diggity is Here: On August 23, 2022, our sea turtle patrol team was assisting almost 100 newly hatched sea turtles to the ocean. Some of those hatchlings were not very strong, including Lil Diggity. Lil Diggity was brought to the GSTC for care. Join Lil Diggity's adoptive family to follow this turtle's journey!
