Thank you for your support of Longboat Key Turtle Watch!

We are a non-profit volunteer  organization. Your donation helps us purchase supplies, GPS units and educational materials in addition to supporting Mote's Sea Turtle Programs. 

You can support/donate in several ways by clicking on the item below you are interested in:

  • "Naming the Nest" -  Nest adoptions make a great gift for any occasion!
  • Becoming a "Sea Turtle Defender" - Children ages 2-18
  • Purchasing Longboat Key Turtle Watch Apparel - Look stylish on the beach!
  • Becoming or renewing a Longboat Key Turtle Watch Membership  - Requires you to be an active volunteer and attend meetings. Membership dues must be paid between 3/1 and 4/15 each year in order to be an active volunteer. Being an active volunteer allows you to participate in educational outreach opportunities, beach clean-ups and other off-beach volunteer activities. Being a Longboat Key Turtle Watch volunteer does not guarantee beach patrol, which requires additional training through the Mote Marine Laboratory Sea Turtle Conservation and Research Program, as well as Florida Fish & Wildlife. If Membership is closed for the year and the link above is disabled or if you cannot commit to being an active volunteer, please consider becoming a supporter by clicking the link below. 
  • Or Simply Become a Supporter and Make a Donation! Your donations big or small are what enables us to do our job! Thank you for whatever you can give!
