Adopt A Nest

  • The Adopt-a-Nest program allows you to adopt one of our terrapin nests and then release the hatchlings into the bay when they hatch. This program is a great way for you and your family to receive a hands on experience and an in-depth understanding of the terrapins of Long Beach Island.

    ​Our hatchlings are expected to arrive anytime between middle to late August and September, but only Mother Nature really knows.

    *Our Adopt a Nest program will be in person unless there are changes in the COVID-19 pandemic

    Included in your downloadable 'Adopt A Nest' package is:

    • Adoption certificate for your nest
    • Information about the nesting and hatching process
    • Pictures of previous hatchlings
    • Information on the Terrapin Nesting Project
    • Required forms and waivers
    • Email updates on the status of your nest


  • All sales are final.
