Small-Town sea Turles
The mission of the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center, located in Surf City, NC, is to conserve and preserve of all species of marine turtles, both in the water and on the beach. They accomplish this through the rescue, care, and release of sick and injured sea turtles, public education regarding the plight of sea turtles and the threat of their extinction, and learning opportunities for students of biology, wildlife conservation, and veterinary medicine from around the world. As a nonprofit organization, they view our work as a privilege and are honored to work with these magnificent creatures. Nearly everyone involved in this operation volunteers their time.
