Life and Art in Charleston 105 - sea turtle rescue

Start the new year off with a fresh look at our local aquarium! Go behind the scenes at the Sea Turtle Rescue Hospital located within the aquarium; it is truly fascinating for children of all ages.

Sea turtles at the Charleston SC Aquarium receive diligent care from the staff of the rescue hospital after being admitted for ailments such as infection, dehydration, and injury caused by boats or other animals, to name a few.

Our local beaches serve as launch sites for rehabilitated turtles happily released back to their natural environment.
