When I think sea turtles, I think Finding Nemo. And the East Australian Current. Here in North Carolina sea turtles are the real deal. They come to shore on the local beaches and nest their eggs every summer. Then wah-lah baby sea turtles hatch and make their way to the ocean 60 days later. Talk about a bucket list thing! I'm going to try to get in on that this summer!
It's a small little place. Lots of educational opportunities to learn about sea turtles and what the sanctuary is doing. Plus, we saw many turtles who are to be released in the near future with lots of personality. Who knew turtles had personality?!?
And kudos to all the knowledgeable volunteers who taught us way more than we realized there was to learn :)
