feature-img-2*Pre-release procedures will begin at 10:30 a.m.
All releases are dependent on favorable weather and surf conditions.
Check back here, or our Facebook page for any changes to this release.

Join us on Wednesday, June 1st at 11:00 a.m. as we celebrate the successful rehabilitation of sea turtle patients Betty White and Charleson. Come cheer these love-able sea turtles on as they head back to the ocean. The release will take place on the beach located adjacent to the center in Loggerhead Park. Guests are encouraged to arrive early for best viewing and to see the turtle prepared for its return home to the ocean.

Betty White is a near adult loggerhead that stranded in the ICW in Jupiter last December with flotation issues. Charleson is a sub-adult loggerhead that stranded in Jensen Beach, also last December and also with flotation issues.  Both are now healthy and ready to go home. Betty White will be fitted with a satellite linked transmitter prior to the release.

Jr. Vet Kids Lab @ Loggerhead Marinelife Center
Jun 1 @ 3:30 pm – 4:00 pm

Rinker_girls
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.
