A little history...

The Terrapin Nesting project started on Long Beach Island, New Jersey, founded by Kathy Lacey in 2011. Over the years, Kathy has built a strong foundation of volunteers and awareness, along with saving and releasing upwards of 10,000 diamondback terrapins into Barnegat Bay. 

Now, we have expanded the TNP to historical Leeds Point New Jersey, home of the Jersey Devil, and to many diamondback terrapins in dire need of conservation efforts.
