Groundbreaking for New Facility!!

groundbreaking

On Saturday, September 14th, we officially broke ground for our new facility!

Thank you to all who came to witness this historic event!

As many of you know, we have been making expansion plans for quite a while. We have highly outgrown our current facility which attracts over 90,000 visitors per year (records set this summer) and houses dozens of turtles.

Our new facility will be a large education center with a 234 person amphitheater, large tanks for permanent resident sea turtles, a bigger gift shop, a classroom, office space, and updated educational displays. The current facility will be used as rehabilitation space and the current gift shop/ICU will be a complete vet clinic with viewing windows!
We will be better equipped to deal with high numbers of tourists, mass cold strandings, large school groups, and ultimately provide a better rehab area for sea turtles and better experience for tourists and visitors!

More information on this expansion, as well as donation opportunities, can be found HERE
