For your information, Eleanor Fletcher who is also known as the “Turtle Lady” founded what is now called the Loggerhead Marinelife Center. 25 years ago she decided that educating children about the sea turtles and the need for conservation and protection was the best hope for the turtles to survive in communities that man was becoming a resident.
She began by giving classes in her home and today over 16,000 school children come to the center for field trips, outreach programs, summer camp and educational experiences. In addition, another 200,000 visitors come to the center each year.
The Loggerhead Marinelife Center is a non-profit organization that houses a variety of exhibits, live sea turtles, a veterinary hospital, exhibit hall, outdoor classrooms, and research lab and resource center. The park’s amenities included a guarded beach, nature trail, and playground and picnic pavilions.
There are several oceanfront communities that share the beach with these sacred turtles such as The Beachfront, The Oceanfront, The Waterfront, Brigadoon and 700 Ocean to name a few.
