Sea Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation

Endangered sea turtles are often injured as a result of cold-strandings and other environmental disasters, as well as man-made injuries such as boat strikes or entanglement in nets and fishing line.

 

Our Tampa Sea Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation is part of the Center for Conservation and is one of only a few rehabilitation facilities authorized by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

 

With an emphasis on critical care and release back into the wild, The Florida Aquarium's full-time veterinary program and medical staff assist with sea turtle rehabilitation not only in Tampa, but nationwide. They do everything they can to ensure the Sea Turtle conservation and ongoing livelihood of these amazing creatures.
