During our stay on Florida’s Treasure Coast, we made SO many memorable experiences as a family but, one of our favorites was a behind the scenes tour of the Loggerhead Marine Life Center! The boys’ minds left full of knowledge about sea turtle species, rehabilitation, rescues, and releases!
We loved the aquariums inside the center museum and Linc got extra lovin’ from all of the amazing volunteers and staff! Admission cost is a chosen donation from it’s visitors and all donations go to maintaining and expanding the Loggerhead Marine Life Center!
As most kids do, the boys LOVED all of the hands on activities and features and were blown away by the massive Loggerhead skeleton hanging from the ceiling!
The Loggerhead Marine Life Center works hard every single day to rehabilitate several species of sea turtles to either release them once their healthy enough to live in their natural habitat or are transported safely to a permanent new home!
We are SO grateful to the Loggerhead Marine Life Center for bringing us behind the scenes into the Rehab Hospital to meet Corwin! Corwin was hit by a boat and severely injured. The hospital facility checks his bloodwork, takes X-Rays, monitors his vitals, and will be nursing his injury back to health! We were INCREDIBLY surprised to hear that after our introduction to Corwin, he was a new member of our family! HUGE thanks to the Loggerhead Marine Life Center for gifting us the adoption of Corwin!
The Loggerhead Marine Life Center has done such an amazing job with designing a beautiful facility to love and care for these animals as well as teach the community about their services and the importance of keeping our oceans and beaches clean! Before we left, the boys played in the play area surrounded by a hand painted Guy Harvey mural!
We are SO excited to head back to LMLC next year after they start renovations for expansion!!
