Wish List

Every now and then we all need a little help from our friends. We have obtained many of the tools we need to be effective and successful protecting marine wildlife and the habitats it occupies. But there are always needs to outfit new volunteers and to replace worn-out rescue and cleanup equipment.

Blue Turtle Society LOVES to re-purpose items. If you have old:

  • Towels
  • Pet Carriers (any size, but the real need is for mid-sized to large to transport birds and smaller sea turtles)
  • Bins with Lids (ditto)
  • Kiddie Swimming Pools (to keep goo off the transport vehicle carpet)
  • Nets (large/small, wide hoop, crab, shrimp, other)
  • Boat Hooks
  • Laundry & Shrimp Baskets

New items: Click an item to get it for us on AmazonSmile 🙂 or check out our Amazon Wish List – but even if you get it for us somewhere else we’ll still smile!
