Sea Turtle STARs

Join us in supporting the Aquariums through our new initiative, Sea Turtle STARs. Your tax-deductible contribution of $350, $500, or $1,000 will directly support sea turtle conservation and the STAR Center at the NC Aquarium Roanoke Island.

Donors will be recognized with turtle-shaped tiles to be displayed on the wall leading into the STAR Center. With your contribution, you may choose your tile color: blue, teal, or green. You may also choose the wording of your personalized tile, with your own name or to honor or remember a loved one.

Recognition will be for a term of five years and will be renewable at sponsorship levels in effect at the time of renewal.

A replica of your tile is available for an additional donation of $100.

If you are purchasing this as a gift and would like an acknowledgement letter sent in the mail, please call our toll-free number at 800-832-FISH(3474).

Tiles may be purchased online, through visitor services, or by calling us toll-free at 800-832-FISH(3474) to speak to a representative.
