We successfully launched our first official virtual field trip this month and we are so excited! Now, with the help of technology, we are bringing our educational programs to classrooms across the country and all over the world. Sea Turtle, Inc has always been passionate about the education of future generations of conservation leaders here at our facility, so this new project allows us to broaden our educational reach.  Students are able engage with our education staff while they learn about sea turtles, take an interactive tour of our facility, and ask questions in real time.
The program costs $100 and lasts 45 minutes.  Virtual Field Trips are currently available on Mondays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST and Tuesday through Friday 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. CST. Please call (956)761-4511 to schedule a virtual field trip, or email caitlin.bovery@nullseaturtleinc.org with any questions.
