A spectacular sunny sight of a structure to save sea turtles! This is our new sea turtle care building expected to be completed at the end of 2017. The 16,000+ square foot hospital will house dozens of rescued sea turtles in our care. Thanks to our amazing supporters and guests, particularly Tampa Electric, who have made our new Center for Conservation become a reality!

Our people really do amazing things (we're bragging, just a little ). This is Rosemary, a rescued loggerhead sea turtle.

Happy World Wetlands Day!

More than one-third of the United States' endangered and threatened animal species live only in wetlands habitats. Brown pelicans, like our girl Bridgette here, also call wetlands habitat home. Let's work to protect and restore these natural treasures today and every day! #WorldWetlandsDay
