We are very excited to announce that NEST has just been told of a matching gift pledge from two sea turtle lovers. They challenge you to join them in supporting NEST and have pledged to match up to $3,000 every dollar donated by December 31. In the next few weeks you will be receiving a year-end appeal letter from NEST. We hope you will take the challenge and double your gift to NEST by responding before the end of the year. For every dollar you give another dollar will be raised.


As you know NEST has had a record setting year from cold stuns to sea turtle nests.  Your donation will be used to replenish nesting supplies lost in the storm, replace aging ATVs used for beach patrol, upgrade the Buxton Staging Center for cold stunned sea turtles, provide educational materials and support our volunteers so they can do everything possible to protect our sea turtles.

We thank you for your past contributions of time and money and for giving what you can before the end of the year.
