Imagine the entire coastal ecosystem in the southeast changed: colder water temperatures causing animals to desperately fight for survival, often unsuccessfully. Our coasts are recovering from such a crisis now, and it is leaving our oceans in peril. An estimated 5,000 sea turtles stranded along the Atlantic coast in February 2010, 4,500 in Florida alone, as temperatures have dropped, in some places reaching a frigid 50 degrees.

Loggerhead sea turtles are listed as ‘threatened’ under the Endangered Species Act. The largest concentration of loggerhead sea turtles resides in the Atlantic Ocean – with some populations nesting their young off Georgia’s coast. With your renewal, we invite you to join us for our 2010 Animal Encounters in Georgia Explorer’s sea turtle habitat. Come learn from our husbandry team about how we care for, rehabilitate and release these wonderful animals.
