You can learn about the ecology, history, and current status of sea turtles through a “sea turtle lecture” through a slideshow presentation, a “tour of the aquarium” with our staff, a “feeding experience” with cute sea turtles, and a “shell polishing experience” where you can touch real sea turtles. I’m sure that by the time you leave, you’ll be amazed at the ecology of sea turtles, and continue to fall in love with them more after our fun hands-on experiences!
