OK, so we don’t have sea turtles, sharks, grouper, and the like in the Zoo! But we still care immensely about their survival and their habitat and we hope you do, too! For World Oceans Day we’re hosting representatives from Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, Palm Beach County Reef Research Team, Reef Rescue, Sea Turtle Conservation League of Singer Island, Florida Hawksbill Project at the Palm Beach Zoo, and other great organizations to help show you how you can protect these precious resources.
We’ll also have interesting multi-media presentations in the special events pavilion including Jim Abernathy’s “This Is Your Ocean: Sharks” and more! Look for area dive shops, boat and kayak rental companies, professional underwater photographers along with other ocean and coastal related businesses in the Fountain Plaza through out the day.
