Network for Endangered Sea Turtles (N.E.S.T.) is hosting an online silent auction beginning Friday, January 29. In lieu of the in-person event typically held every spring, the organization will hold a series of virtual auctions. The Valentine’s fundraiser contains specially curated items perfect for your loved ones. A variety of pieces, from restaurant gift certificates to unique fashion finds, will be up for auction from Friday, January 29 to Saturday, February 6. Find the auction at https://charityauction.bid/NEST2021. Some items will only be available for local pickup and will be marked.
N.E.S.T. wishes to thank the donors and bidders that continue to make our online fundraisers such a success! The winter months bring cold-stunned sea turtles to our shores, and funds raised support our volunteer efforts to rescue, transport, and support the rehabilitation efforts at the STAR Center. If you spot a stranded sea turtle, please call our hotline at 252-441-8622.
Your donations support N.E.S.T. activities including sea turtle nest protection, data collection, stranding response/rescue, rehabilitation, and public education. For more information on N.E.S.T.’s mission and activities, or to learn how you can volunteer, visit nestonline.org.

N.E.S.T. is committed to contributing to the preservation of these species through research and rescue and rehabilitation efforts and to fostering greater understanding and appreciation of these species and their habitat through education and enhanced public awareness.
