My family and I had a wonderful experience while staying in Melbourne Beach. A volunteer for the Sea Turtle Preservation Society was checking out the turtle nests on the beach and found a baby Leatherback sea turtle. She made a point of gathering some people who were on the beach, so we could see and hold the baby turtle. My... More

Support the efforts and interest to protect the growth and survival of these little turtle youth. This is their season for birth and recovery to the sea. Protect them, as life and our future world is shown here... be supportive and aware of new life.

We visited Satellite Beach last summer as a family and while there we visited the Sea Turtle Preservation Society and signed up to go on not one but two turtle walks. The pretalk was very informative and educational for children and adults alike. The hardest part was waiting for the turtle to do her part. The first night we had... More

Loved near here for two years and often took visitors here to learn more about the Atlantic turtles and wildlife. Has a short educational film and nice gift shop that supports turtle preservation activities.

The Preservation Society offers in depth information about the nesting season. The personnel share the details of the rescue process for the turtles and the eggs. It explains the importance viewing the nesting cautiously.

This is a great place to take the kids to learn about sea turtles. We lucked out last year when they were having a special exhibit. They had the kids wear turtle backpacks and crawl through mazes and meet up with all the hazards sea turtles encounter.. EXCELLENT! We had to drive a ways but it was well worth it.
