Sea Turtle Season Nest Dedications for 2024
Thank you for participating in our Limited Edition Holiday 2024 Nest Dedication Fundraiser!
(Submission period ending December 1)
Your dedication helps fund our organization's operations while simultaneously sparking an interest in education about sea turtles! In Mid-December, the person being honored with the Sea Turtle Nest Dedication will receive a packet with a certificate announcing the nest number. This Holiday Dedication Packet will also contain a special gift from STPHHI. During the 2024 sea turtle nesting season, which is May 1 thru Mid-August, you and the recipient of this dedication will be notified when the nest was laid and its general location on the beach. By the end of the sea turtle season, usually in early October, both parties will be notified of all results from the hatched nest.
Sea Turtle Patrol HHI
is a volunteer organization that depends on donations from the community to keep up with expenses required to document daily sea turtle activity. Vehicle maintenance, fuel, poles, tape, latex gloves, digging tools, mallets, and insurance are a few of the expenses that are essential to monitor 14 miles of HHI ocean facing beach, Mitchelville beach and Pine Island/Dolphin Head beaches. STPHHI is the only program on Hilton Head Beach that is permitted by the state to protect sea turtle nests and hatchlings.
