Join Our Terrapin Team!

    Our organization is completely run by volunteers, therefore we are always in need of support from the community. If you decide to become a volunteer there are many opportunities that allow you to help our Diamondback Terrapins. Volunteers have the chance to:

  • "Scouting" - Patrol for nesting females & help them cross the busy roads

  • "Data Research" - Recording of scientific data for research

  • "Photography/Videography" - Take pictures/videos of our girls

  • "Hatchling Watch" - Watching our hatchery for new hatchlings around mid to late August

    Want to Volunteer to help the Terrapin Nesting Project? We are looking for volunteers to assist in helping our TNP team members with Diamondback Terrapins. We are asking you sign up for at least 1 hour. Volunteers are required to sign up using the button below, and are expected to always follow our safety precautions. Please be sure to provide an email as well as a phone number. Check back often as we will be adding more dates and times as needed. 





We look forward to meeting our future members of our Terrapin Team! If you have any other questions about volunteering click the button below!
