from The Turtle Hospital, Marathon Key, Florida

The Turtle Hospital (a charitable corporation), was opened in 1986 with four main goals: 1) repair injured sea turtles and return them to the wild, 2) educate the public through outreach programs to local schools, 3) conduct and assist with research which aids the sea turtles (in conjunction with state universities), and 4) work toward environmental legislation which makes the beaches and water safe and clean for sea turtles.

 

The Turtle Hospital has successfully treated and released over 750 Sea Turtles since its inception.
