Support RFMRP's Cold Stunned Sea Turtle Season

New England has been hit hard this year with cold stunned sea turtles. Due to their high numbers, New England Aquarium has transferred 9 Kemp's ridley and 4 Loggerhead sea turtles to our facility for treatment. Currently, we have 17 sea turtles in-house but that number will be continue to grow since cold stun season is not over yet.

Now we need your help!

The squid that all of our patients eat cost about two dollars per pound and we have lots of hungry turtles to feed. With your help, our patients will regain their strength and return to good health so that they can be released back to their home in the wild. Your donation will help these sea turtles get the food they need and proper medical care/treatment. 

Please help us give these turtles a  second chance at life. 

Every donation makes a difference!

$4 = 1 week of food for a Kemp’s ridley sea turtle
$16 = 1 month of food for a Kemp’s ridley sea turtle
$28 = 1 week of food for a Loggerhead sea turtle
$35 = 1 day of medical care for 1 sea turtle
$50 = 1 week of clean water for 1 sea turtle
$112 = 1 month of food for a Loggerhead sea turtle

Thank you for your support!
