Silent Auction

ATTENTION SEA TURTLE COLLECTORS! We can’t keep quiet about our Silent Auction at the upcoming 2023 Southeast Regional Sea Turtle Meeting!

We will welcome gently used “ANYTHING TURTLE” pieces, gear, figurines, antiques, clothing, paper, housewares… if it’s turtle related, it’s auction ready! We’ll even auction off trips, homes, experiences… if you can provide it, we can put a bid on it!

Please consider donating to this important money-making event. The funds we collect help support the SERSTN as well as Sea Turtle Conservancy’s research, education and conservation initiatives. BUT, we need you and your goodies to make our silent auction a success.

In order to expedite the submission of auction items, we request that you download and print the auction form, provide the requested information and submit it with your item when dropping off your auction items. Please submit one form for each item.
