Turtles are terrific, and this Saturday, May 21st, the South Carolina Aquarium is celebrating World Turtle Day with a slew of educational and fun activities.
World Turtle Day was started to increase respect and knowledge for the world’s oldest creatures. These gentle animals have been around for about 200 million years, yet they are rapidly disappearing as a result of the exotic food industry, habitat destruction and the cruel pet trade.
World Turtle Day at the South Carolina Aquarium is sure to be fun for the whole family.
Take advantage of one of Saturday's four tours of the Sea Turtle Hospital. Tour tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids in addition to ticket cost. For more information, call (843) 577-3474 or visit scaquarium.org.
