The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Hospital will be opening for visitors and tours at their new location.

302 Tortuga Road, Surf City

March 15 and April 19

11:00 – 3:00

Guests are welcome to check out the new facility as well as meet their new arrivals like Gunnar, Valor and Dane. This rescue team has rescued and rehabilitated hundreds of sea turtles and released them back into the ocean. This is a wonderful center to learn more about sea turtles and how we can enjoy the beach without harming their habitat. The 100% volunteer run sea turtle hospital is a great resource to find out where and when the sea turtles are nesting on Topsail Island. It is also a great place for locals to volunteer and help the rehabilitation hospital.
