Turtle Adoption Program

To increase awareness and gather conservation and funding support for the conservation of endangered and threatened sea turtles in the waters of Honduras, Central America, we have developed the Turtle Adoption Program that provides an opportunity for you to adopt sea turtles.

Each turtle adopter will be able to name their sea turtle, receive an official adoption certificate, and receive an electornic file with photos, tag numbers, and research information about their turtle.

To adopt a sea turtle simply print and mail the turtle adoption form here or below.
For more information contact Dr. Stephen G. Dunbar at sdunbar@llu.edu.

Moving? Please send updated street and e-mail addresses to sdunbar@llu.edu
