“Very educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

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.

“Be a Turtle!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

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.
