Our World Without

In the end…our heart and soul was you.

Because of the overwhelming outpouring of love and support from this community, we have reached our fundraising goal to save the Sea Turtle Care Center™ and our education programs through the Our World Without campaign. You gave us a tomorrow, a next week, a next month, a next decade… a future. From the entire Aquarium family: thank you!

Our Soul

Sea Turtle Care Center

Because of you, we’ll continue to rescue, rehabilitate and release sea turtles who are admitted to our Sea Turtle Care Center™. These sea turtles are ambassadors for all marine life, offering folks the opportunity to learn their stories and advocate to protect what they love.
