Adopt-A-Nest

Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire offers companies and individuals on Bonaire and further afield the opportunity to Adopt-A-Nest. Adopting a nest is a meaningful way to link your company’s brand or your name to the protection of Bonaire’s most iconic wildlife. You can Adopt-A-Nest by donating $600, thereby investing in a sustainable future for Bonaire’s sea turtles.

Nest adoption benefits
Supporting Bonaire’s widely-loved sea turtles by adopting a nest allows for prominent visibility: through press, word of mouth and social media STCB puts the nest adopters’ name and logo in the spotlight. But that’s not all: the adopters also receive a unique Adopt-A-Nest certificate, and their name and/or logo are displayed on STCB’s Nest-O-Meter.

Each adoption includes:

  • A certificate of adoption
  • A summary of your adopted nest (e.g. species, number of hatchlings)
  • Increased exposure for your company
  • A more secure future for Bonaire’s sea turtles

For more information, please contact STCB at stcb@bonaireturtles.org or +599 717 2225.

Note: your support can be considered a donation or sponsorship. In case of a sponsorship, STCB will provide a material advantage to your company through increased exposure and will therefore have to charge ABB (6%).

How a symbolic nest adoption helps Bonaire’s sea turtles
Your donation for our Adopt-A-Nest program helps us to protect the nests that are laid on Bonaire’s beaches in the interests of sea turtle survival. Your support enables us to:

  • Relocate nests that are in danger of drowning
  • Rescue newborn turtles that become wrapped in roots during hatching
  • Sustain the popular Beachkeeper program
  • Collect data that will help us protect nests better, as well as reveal the health status of Bonaire’s sea turtles



Thank you!
