We preserve and protect the habitats and migration routes of Sea Turtles and other marine animals on the Outer Banks.
Led by founder Millie Overman, NEST was established in 1995. N.E.S.T. is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and conservation of sea turtles and other protected marine wildlife on the Outer Banks of North Carolina from the Virginia line to south Nags Head. N.E.S.T. is committed to contributing to the preservation of these species through research and rescue and rehabilitation efforts and to fostering greater understanding and appreciation of these species and their habitat through education and enhanced public awareness. We work in partnership with the North Carolina Wildlife Commission and the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island. We also work closely with the townships in Dare and Currituck Counties on issues related to sea turtles.
