what a fantastic place to visit to see live SEATURTLES-----and a great place to donate to, that actually puts most of the money to good use HELPING the TURTLES---(not like other so-called turtle 'hospitals' that take in THOUSANDS of dollars every DAY and use them to just put on nice little "Galas" and "parties" for their Boardmembers and friends ?????
