Like us, you love sea turtles, and you can protect what you love by becoming a Sea Turtle Guardian.
Every stage of the turtles’ journey home, from the moment they arrive at the hospital to the moment they return to the ocean, would not be possible without the support of many, including you. The preservation of these charismatic animals is critical to the health of the marine ecosystem.
Connect with the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Care Center on a deeper level by making an annual or recurring contribution that will help save more sea turtles.
When you become a Sea Turtle Guardian, you will join a community of passionate advocates for sea turtle conservation and gain access to exclusive content and special invitations.

- Monthly Sea Turtle Guardian emails, including patient updates and behind-the-scenes content
- Opportunity to submit questions for discussion via Ask a Sea Turtle Biologist
- Access to our Guardians-only Facebook group, where you’ll receive updates directly from our Sea Turtle Care Center team
- “Ask a Sea Turtle Biologist” quarterly Zoom call
- Invitation to the annual Sea Turtle Guardian Social
