You’re Invited to Celebrate World Sea Turtle Day

Celebrate World Sea Turtle Day with Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC) at the Florida Museum of Natural History! Children and families are invited to tour the museum’s sea turtle exhibits with staff from Sea Turtle Conservancy. These expert-led “Turtle Tours” are a great way to learn about sea turtles and their habitat. Kids will also create fun turtle crafts to take home, meet sea turtle scientists, and play turtle trivia for a chance to win a cool prize. Researchers from the Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle Research at UF will be there from 2 – 4 pm to answer questions about sea turtle conservation and careers in marine biology. The event features sea turtle specimens, a turtle library, and free stickers and 2013 Event Flyerbookmarks for all kids. The World Sea Turtle Day Celebration is free and open to the public.
