If your little one is curious about the ocean and inhabitants, this is perfect for them! Tune in to the Loggerhead Facebook page every weekday at 2:00 p.m. EST and weekends at 11:00 a.m. EST for a 15-20 minute virtual learning lesson. Each topic is focused on sea turtles, rehabilitation, and ocean conservation. You can also download activity sheets, get online resources, and take interactive quizzes on each module at this link.

Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s biologist educator, Hannah discusses how lung infections like pneumonia affect sea turtles and observe our sea turtle patient, Annie Beau, receiving her treatment. In this program, Hannah highlights how our rehab department uses unique "turtle-approved" and innovative techniques to administer medication for these types of infections using a nebulizer.
