On his recent trip to the Keys, Florida Governor Rick Scott made sure to pay a visit to Marathon’s Turtle Hospital, where the governor helped release a once-injured 30-pound sea turtle named “Sas” back into the wild. After being rescued by a fisherman who found Sas tangled in a lobster trap line, the good folks at the Turtle Hospital made sure to give Sas the best in modern turtle medical treatments– something you and your family can learn firsthand about when you visit the Turtle Hospital for a tour. This incredible Marathon institution has been dedicated to the rehabilitation and re-introduction of sea turtles into the wild for over 25 years. Offering a wide range of educational programs, the Turtle Hospital is a must-see for anyone visiting Marathon. Stop in today and learn about these majestic creatures and what humans can do to protect and heal them!
The hospital offers guided educational experiences to the public daily 7 days a week. Please call 305-743-2552 for further information and reservations.
