For the safety of our guests, The Splash Pad, our outdoor children's play area, is closed through spring 2017 as we complete construction of the Mosaic Center and enhancements to our outdoor plaza area. We apologize for any inconvenience.


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.
