The Center is a nonprofit committed to the conservation of ocean ecosystems through public education, research and rehabilitation of threatened and endangered sea turtles. The center features an on-site hospital, learning exhibits and aquariums. Situated on the world's most important sea turtle nesting beach and breeding ground for loggerheads, leatherbacks, and green turtles, the museum sponsors guided walks on the beach to see them during the height of the season.
