With just 7 sea turtles to go until our 200th rehabilitated turtle, South Carolina Aquarium is turtlely excited to announce the commitment of a community challenge grant in support of the Sea Turtle Recovery™ experience. Presented by Dr. Del and Linda Schutte on behalf of the Charleston Institute for Advanced Orthopedics, the Aquarium has secured a challenge grant opportunity for which each dollar raised, up to $100,000 will be matched 1:1.

Slated to open May 2017, Sea Turtle Recovery™ will serve as a living, interactive learning landscape. It will present the remarkable journey from rescue, to rehabilitation, to release, that each of our patients experience and allow our guests to share in this journey.

We are so humbled by and grateful for this generous act from the Charleston Institute for Advanced Orthopedics – we are truly lucky to be part of such a fin-tastically supportive community! Onward March to 200!
