Thanks to everyone who tuned into our Live Sea Turtle Nesting Q & A! We have posted the full video on our Facebook page. During nesting season (March 1 - Oct. 31), please don't hesitate to contact @myfwc or our center if you see a sick or injured sea turtle or someone disturbing a nesting season turtle. #loggerheadseaturtle #loggerheadmarinelifecenter #seaturtles #seaturtle #seaturtleresearch #marinelife #live #qandavideo #qanda #conservationist #research #science #coolscience #nestingseason #thepalmbeaches #palmbeachcounty #southflorida #junobeachfl #jupiterfl #juplife #reptiles #reptilesofinstagram

Recently, our rehab staff discovered a piece of a balloon (along with several pieces of microplastic) in the intestines of a deceased post hatchling sea turtle patient. According to a 2015 study conducted by the @oceanconservancy balloons are ranked third in deadliest ocean trash. With the start of sea turtle nesting season, it's vital that we keep our beaches and seas trash free.

We wish our partners at @pbillustrated a very happy 65 year anniversary and thank them for showcasing our Center and our Community. Check out this article which offers up two very easy ways that everyone can get involved in helping to conserve resources and protect our beaches and sea turtles. Remember, sea turtle nesting season in Palm Beach County kicks off this Wednesday March 1st (bit.ly/2mpiyxb)! #linkinbio #loggerheadmarinelifecenter #news #nesting #nestingseason #seaturtle #seaturtles #loggerheadseaturtle #loggerhead #seaturtlerescue #seaturtleresearch #research #science #marinebiology #marinelife #marinebio #palmbeachillustrated #conservationist #conservationeducation #scienceeducation #junobeach #southflorida

The first day a sea turtle hatchling emerges from its nest, it enters a world where the odds are not in its favor. It enters a world, where it may encounter a human-caused threat before its flippers touch the ocean for the first time. With nesting and hatching season approaching we would like to share Lucie Kleinschmidt's artistic representation of the perils a sea turtle hatchling may face. In addition, we would like to express our gratitude for Lucie for helping us spread our mission by presenting her art work at a film festival in Germany. Read about Lucie's film festival experience and her motivation to create the film (bit.ly/2lrQnK0). The First Day - A Film by Lucie Kleinschmidt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvuLf6bNYu8

On Wednesday, March 1st at 12:30 p.m. EST we will celebrate the start of sea turtle nesting season by hosting a Facebook and Instagram LIVE Q&A with our research team. Our team encourages all sea turtle advocates to review the dos and don'ts of sea turtle nesting season (#linkinbio) prior to Wednesday. In addition, we'd like to thank all of our supporters, volunteers and staff who vow to help create a safer nesting and hatching environment for all sea turtles. #ConservationSunday #loggerheadseaturtle #loggerheadmarinelifecenter #seaturtles #seaturtle #seaturtlehospital #seaturtlenesting #hatching #hatchlings #savetheturtles #protecttheturtles #savewildlife #marinelife #marinebiology #blog #tips #protip #goodreads #goodread #sciencecenter #science #endangeredspecies #junobeach #jupiterfl

From now until March 31st, we are offering an Early Bird Registration Special for our Junior Marine Biologist summer camp. Our summer camp programs are interactive, educational and stimulating. Each camp is geared towards children ages 6* through 17. Students participating in the Jr. Marine Biologist summer camp program will gain an understanding of various nature-related topics such as (but not limited to) ecology and marine biology, with an emphasis on conservation (bit.ly/2jn3cIu). #linkinbio #summercamp #camp #discount #earlybirdregistration #loggerheadmarinelifecenter #loggerheadseaturtle #seaturtlehospital #cute #animalrescue #cool #coolexperience #marinebiology #marinelife #marineconservation #marinebiologist #specialdiscount #specialrate #coolsummer #educational #sciencecamp #sciencecenter

Each day, our volunteers and staff are moved by stories of individuals who have a deeply rooted connection to our mission. Today, we want to share the story of a passionate sea turtle advocate named Camrin, who travels from Michigan to visit the Center every year. Recently, when Camrin and her mom were visiting the Center she sneaked off to the gift store to adopt Nemo with her own money. After reaching out to her mom, we were informed that Camrin becomes more inspired by our work every time she visits and has banned the use of plastic straws in her home. Camrin understands that it doesn't matter whether you live close to the ocean or not, because every conservation effort makes a difference. In a few years, her family will move to Jupiter so Camrin can fulfill her vow to volunteer at LMC. Thank you to Camrin, her mom and all of our supporters who help us spread our mission of sea turtle and ocean conservation around the globe! #loggerheadmarinelifecenter #seaturtles #seaturtlehospital #seaturtle #protecttheturtles #savetheturtles #conservationist #inspiring #leadership #inspire #volunteer #oceanconservation #seaturtleconservation #adopt #adoption #nemo #dogood #dogoodbegood #science #girlsinstem #marinebio #marinebiology #stem #stemgirls #coolstory #feelgood

During the 2015 International Coastal Cleanup, the Ocean Conservancy reported collecting 16,186,759 pounds of marine pollution. As ocean pollution continues to increase, we continue to look for new ways to raise awareness and combat the issue. This year, LMC will hold an art contest and science fair, focusing on marine pollution, for students grades 3-12. Select artwork will be displayed at #MarinelifeDay and at LMC. Selected young scientists will have the chance to work with Loggerhead’s conservation team on making their project a reality. For more information on the art contest, please contact Amanda at amoore@marinelife.org. For more information on the science fair, please contact Demi at dfox@marinelife.org. #ConservationSunday #art #marinepollutionart #marinedebrisart #artcontest #sciencefair #science #cool #plasticpollution #trashfreeseas #loggerheadmarinelifecenter #seaturtlehospital #microplastics #marinelifeday #conservation #getinvolved #oceanconservation #jupiterfl #waveart #recycledart #upcycled #creative
