Rescue, rehab and release is a main part of Clearwater Marine Aquarium’s mission. Our goal is to return marine animals back to their homes in the wild. We have released over 35 rescued marine animals since 2016.
All marine turtle footage taken in Florida was obtained with the approval of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) under conditions not harmful to marine turtles. Footage was acquired while conducting authorized conservation activities pursuant to FWC MTP-17-172.
