“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,” stated a N.E.S.T. press release. “If you spot a stranded sea turtle, please call our hotline at 252-441-8622.”
