Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation Center
The mission of the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center is the conservation and preservation of all species of marine turtles, both in the water and on the beach. We accomplish this through the rescue, care, and release of sick and injured sea turtles, public education regarding the plight of sea turtles and the threat of their extinction, and learning opportunities for students of biology, wildlife conservation, and veterinary medicine from around the world. A nonprofit organization, we view our work as a privilege and are honored to work with these magnificent creatures.
Let's Talk Turtles! Come learn all you can about sea turtles and what our organization does to protect, rescue, and rehabilitate them. We invite all ages to the Historical Assembly Building in Topsail Beach on Monday mornings to talk turtles!

WHEN: Mondays, 9:00 am, from July 12 through September 27 WHERE: Assembly Building, 720 Channel Blvd, Topsail Beach Parking is across the street and the event will be outside behind the Assembly Building.
