The Sea Turtle Hospital at Loggerhead Marinelife Center (LMC) is a nonprofit sea turtle hospital, research, rehabilitation and educational institution that promotes conservation of ocean ecosystems with a focus on threatened and endangered sea turtles. One of four state-of-the-art sea turtle hospitals in the world, our Center provides world class care to hundreds of injured, sick or stranded sea turtles each year. Situated on one of the world’s most important sea turtle nesting beaches, we monitor 9.5 miles of beach, are open daily and host over 350,000 guests free-of-charge each year. Our conservation team works with 90 local and international organizations across six continents to form partnerships and share conservation initiatives and best practices that are core to our mission of ocean conservation.
