Juno Beach is recognized as one of the most active turtle nesting beaches in the world.
The Marinelife Center of Juno Beach opened a new 12,000 square feet certified "green" facility and changed its name to Loggerhead Marinelife Center in April 2007. The facility has a state-of-the-art full service veterinary hospital, outdoor classroom, research lab, resource center and exhibit hall. They also have a great selection of children's educational books, gift and craft items in their marine-themed gift store. The park amenities include picnic pavilions, playground, nature trail and a guarded beach.
Each year through field trips, outreach programs, summer camp, and other educational experiences, the center hosts thousands of school children. In addition, the sea turtle hospital has more than 200,000 annual visitors. It is the only sea turtle hospital between Orlando and the Florida Keys. We are privileged to have it right here in our local community!
You and your family can enjoy this excellent educational facility and it's only about a 30 minute drive north east of Wellington! Fun and educational for the whole family! marinelife.org
