Edcuation

Through education & outreach, we strive to teach the local Gulf Coast community, tourists, school groups, and more on the unique ecology of the Emerald Coast and the importance of coexistence with wildlife.

Our marine mammal and sea turtle stranding team provide an urgent response to these beached or stranded marine wildlife species along immediate Emerald Coast beaches.

Each year we provide medical care and rehabilitation to almost 2,000 injured or orphaned native Florida species, with the goal of their release back to the wild.
