Sea turtles outlived their contemporaries, the dinosaurs, but they need our help against modern threats. At Mote Aquarium, our sea turtle exhibit explains the traits that helped sea turtles triumph in the past, the trials they face today from hunters, loss of nesting beaches and from run-ins with fishing gear—and the things you can do to help. Mote's Sea Turtle Conservation & Research Program has been documenting sea turtle nesting activity and the status of shoreline habitat for more than three decades along 35 miles of Sarasota County beaches.
Mote’s Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital has treated all five species of turtles found in the Gulf of Mexico. Like Florida Blue, our patients are our priority!
We aim to help all our turtle patients return to the wild and contribute to their populations for years to come.
