Sea Turtle Nest Adoptions help fund the sea turtle patrols and nest conservation here on South Padre Island! Our organization manages Kemp’s ridley sea turtle nest conservation for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Each summer, we patrol a 50-mile stretch of the island and Boca Chica beach for nesting sea turtles and relocate the nests to a protective corral. The hatchlings are protected from high tide, predators, and vehicle traffic while incubating in the corral. They are released into the ocean as soon as they hatch.
