At the Marine Science Center our main goal is rescue, rehabilitation and release of sick and injured turtles and birds.
You can see our sea turtle patients from the turtle terrace and get a behind the scenes view through the hospital viewing window.
In the gallery, guests will also take a journey through Florida marine ecosystems discovering the animals that are indigenous to this area. A hands-on experience awaits you at our stingray and invertebrate touch tanks.
Explore the nature trail and climb the observation tower for views of the estuary. Don't forget to walk through the Mary Keller Bird Sanctuary. Here you will see our permanent resident birds that can no longer live in the wild.
We offer daily animal education presentations where you will experience up close views of raptors and reptiles.
