BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Shell-ebrate World Sea Turtle Day at the Zoo! Explore an obstacle course that simulates the challenges these animals face, play educational games, create a turtle-themed craft and meet representatives from local conservation organizations, including our very own Sea Turtle Healing Center.
All activities included with general Zoo admission. Live sea turtles will not be on display.
World Sea Turtle Day, June 16, is a day used to honor and highlight the importance of sea turtles. These creatures, like any other creature, are magnificent in their own way.
Not only are sea turtles beautiful animals, but they also show incredible perseverance and resiliency– after all, they have been nesting on beaches for millions of years.
So of course they deserve their own day dedicated to their awesomeness!
World Sea Turtle Day would not be rightfully celebrated without mentioning, Dr. Archie Carr, STC’s founder and “father of sea turtle biology.” World Sea Turtle Day is celebrated the same day as Dr. Carr’s birthday, June 16. Dr. Carr will forever be remembered for the enhancement of the sea turtle conservation movement and the legacy he has left behind.
