Beginning Saturday, March 13, N.E.S.T. is hosting the last in its series of fabulous virtual silent auctions. A variety of items, from restaurant gift certificates to vacation stays, will be up for auction from Saturday, March 13 to Saturday, March 20. Find the auction at https://charityauction.bid/NEST2021. Some items will only be available for local pickup and will be marked.

N.E.S.T. wishes to thank the donors and bidders that continue to make our online fundraisers such a success! The winter months bring cold-stunned sea turtles to our shores, and funds raised support our volunteer efforts to rescue, transport, and support the rehabilitation efforts at the STAR Center. If you spot a stranded sea turtle, please call our hotline at 252-441-8622.

Your donations support N.E.S.T. activities including sea turtle nest protection, data collection, stranding response/rescue, rehabilitation, and public education. For more information on N.E.S.T.’s mission and activities, or to learn how you can volunteer, explore our website, nestonline.org.
