Gulf World Marine Institute Tends to Turtles

Meeting a sea turtle up close is a powerful experience.

They're beautiful and graceful in the water, and they're so darn cute, with big eyes and a permanent smile. They're curious about people and seem to want to connect, waving their large flippers when a person comes close. When you get the rare chance to be face to face, you feel an emotional bond right away.
