Join us on a tour of our Sea Turtle Rehabilitation facility at the South Carolina Aquarium! Learn about the endangered species of Sea Turtles in South Carolina and get an in depth view of the process of Rescue, Rehabilitation, and Release.  The South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Care CenterTM aids sick and injured sea turtles in partnership with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR). The Sea Turtle Care CenterTM has proudly released over 338 sea turtles. In 2017, the Aquarium opened Zucker Family Sea Turtle RecoveryTM , a state-of-the-art second floor to the sea turtle hospital.  ZFSTR made it possible to increase capacity for more stranded sea turtles and make it accessible for guests to observe the care and rehabilitation of these threatened and endangered species.
