Children and families are invited to tour the museum’s sea turtle exhibit with staff from the Sea Turtle Conservancy. The free event features sea turtle specimens, a turtle library, and stickers and bookmarks for all kids. Children also may create fun crafts to take home, meet sea turtle scientists and play turtle trivia for a chance to win a cool prize. Visitors will also have the opportunity to speak with researchers from the Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle Research at University of Florida about sea turtle conservation and careers in marine biology.
