sea turtle valentines challenge


Bell peppers are red, the ocean is blue… show your love for sea turtles at the Zoo! This Valentine’s Day, our partners at the Sea Turtle Preservation Society are matching every donation up to $10,000 to Brevard Zoo’s Sea Turtle Healing Center. We’re challenging YOU to join us and show your love for sea turtles by doubling your donation! Can you help us reach our goal of $20,000?


Brevard Zoo’s Sea Turtle Healing Center provides a place for sick and injured sea turtles to rest and receive medical care with the goal of releasing them back into the ocean or river. Our patients strand for a variety of reasons including boat strike injuries, fishing line entanglements and general debilitation.

In its eight years of helping sea turtles, our Healing Center saw more patients in 2021 than in any other year – and we believe 2022 will be another busy one. Since its opening, we’ve released over 160 patients and just under 2,000 post-hatchlings back to the water.

Our staff, volunteers and sea turtles thank you for your love! Donations will be matched until Saturday, February 19.
