Discover Turtles

Did you know that sea turtles have a better sense of smell than sharks? This turtle-filled encounter will teach you that and more while introducing you to our seafaring Loggerheads, a variety of fresh water turtles, and even our land-loving African spurred tortoises. Go behind the scenes to learn about our long-running sea turtle rescue and rehabilitation program where you will get an up-close and personal view of these beautiful animals!
