Together, we can #SaveTheTurtles!

Together, we can #SaveTheTurtles! On March 25th, 2017 over 10,000 people attended Loggerhead Marinelife Center's 14th Annual TurtleFest: Together We Can for a day to celebrate the ocean at Palm Beach County's largest seaside conservation festival. The theme, “Together We Can,” highlighted how everyone can make a difference for the ocean. As such, TurtleFest featured only compostable cutlery and plates, reusable water bottles and stainless steel beverage cups. Because of these changes, LMC reduced the use of thousands of single-use plastic cups, bottles, utensils and plastic bags. For the first time, TurtleFest hosted morning beach cleanups, removing debris from local beaches that was later used to create a beautiful mosaic. Also new to the festival was the Seek Zero Conservation Pavilion & Social Media Lounge. In the space, guests relaxed, joined the #TogetherWeCan conversation and learned about various conservation efforts being implemented by LMC and local partners. Together, we can continue to spread sea turtle conservation awareness and provide rehabilitation care to sick or injured sea turtles! Each year, our gift store celebrates TurtleFest by creating special edition merchandise. All proceeds are put directly back into the Center to help provide care for our sea turtle patients and funding for our 37 educational programs. TurtleFest merchandise is sold on our estore and in our gift store.
