The Sea Turtle Preservation Society announces their World Sea Turtle Day Open House on Saturday, June 16 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.  The celebration takes place at 111 South Miramar Avenue (A1A) in Indialantic. The day also celebrates Archie Carr’s birthday.

The Sea Turtle Preservation Society's mission is to educate the public about marine turtles. The organization reaches thousands of people each year through public presentations, exhibits at area events, and by turtle watches during the sea turtle nesting season. The society's goal is to help maintain the current sea turtle population and to prevent a potentially irreversible decline in that population. The Sea Turtle Preservation Society welcomes everyone to join in protecting and preserving these exquisite animals.
