Top 4 Reasons to Adopt an Endangered Sea Turtle!

  1. You can't find a more unique gift than this. Whether you purchase a sea turtle adoption for a young "hatchling," "sub-adult," or "adult," - all three ages will be sure to appreciate. Sea turtle adoptions are a fun way to show your loved one that you care!
  2. You'll be helping save a threatened or endangered species. All sea turtles are either threatened or endangered. With your donation, you will be providing the food, medication, hospital care, and tank maintenance critical to your adopted turtle's health.
  3. You'll be able to visit your adopted sea turtle. If you live local, you can always stop by and visit your adopted sea turtle. They love seeing their "parents!" If you don't live local, we post weekly updates about our patients on our website - this way you can keep up with your turtle's medical progress.
  4. You'll be an official LMC ambassador. No matter what sea turtle adoption package you purchase, you will have a way to show your love for ocean and sea turtle conservation. It could be in sticker, hat, photo, or magnet form.

*Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee you will be able to witness a public release of your adopted sea turtle. All of our releases are permitted through Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and we must abide by their rules and timelines. The best chances of seeing your adopted turtle publicly released by LMC would be to adopt one of our loggerhead patients. 
*We also can not guarantee the length of a patients stay. Once the turtle is deemed healthy we have about a weeks notice before release.
