“Their efforts are a prime example of what makes the Outer Banks such a special place – a locally-owned small business dedicating a portion of their profits to benefit the local community,” stated the release. “In this case, N.E.S.T. was the very lucky beneficiary.”

N.E.S.T. expressed thanks to the owners, employees and patrons of the Outer Banks Olive Oil Company, as sales of the limited edition sea turtle bottles resulted in a $5,100 donation to the organization.

“N.E.S.T. is proud to announce that the donation will help fund our nesting response efforts and our ongoing project sponsoring annual field trips for classes from Dare County’s elementary schools to the Sea Turtle Assistance and Rehabilitation (STAR) Center at the NC Aquarium at Roanoke Island in Manteo,” stated the release.
