As Sea Turtle Nesting Season is coming to an end in the next few weeks, we are happy to say that because of YOU, many baby sea turtles were able to safely make their way to the ocean! Because of your Devocean, our friends at the FAU Marine Research Lab were able to rescue many turtle nests, rehabilitate sick hatchlings, and release hundreds of hatchlings once they were old enough and strong enough to be released back into the ocean.
Gumbo Limbo and the FAU Marine Research Lab do not only help and rescue sea turtles during nesting season - they are busy making sure sea turtles are protected and healthy throughout the whole year! Many sick, stranded, and injured sea turtles are brought to the facility throughout the year and the team must work together to ensure the best treatment is given so that the sea turtle can return to the ocean healthy, and as soon as possible.
The cost of caring for hatchlings and sick sea turtles can be costly. This is why we continue to donate to the FAU Marine Research Lab throughout the year. We support their research in hopes to create happier and healthy lives for sea turtles out in the ocean and we are glad you all are devoted to the same cause! Together, we can continue to make a difference in the lives of sea turtles!
