The Children’s Research Station presented by the Marshall E. Rinker, Sr. Foundation exercises science skills in children through an experiential lab. Geared at children ages up to 12, the junior veterinary lab accommodates up to 10 children at a time during daily half hour programs, taking participants from sea turtle rescue to release.

The program features “Dr. Logger,” a trained Loggerhead Marinelife Center volunteer acting as the center’s veterinarian.  The 30 minute program begins when Dr. Logger receives a role-played call on the radio from the beach about a sick and injured sea turtle, igniting immediate excitement in participants. The children come to the aid of a green sea turtle replica and Dr. Logger teaches the group about common injuries and illnesses that affect these endangered animals.

No pre-registration is required. Sign-up begins at the facility 30 minutes prior to the program, space is limited.
