BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – As residents of Brevard County, sea turtles are near and dear to all of our hearts, and Brevard Zoo’s Sea Turtle Healing Center asks for you to donate on Zoo Giving Day on Dec. 3. 

Unfortunately, these treasured marine reptiles are fighting for their survival, and they need our help now more than ever.

Brevard Zoo’s Sea Turtle Healing Center exists to give sick and injured sea turtles a second chance, but this responsibility comes with a steep price tag.

Between the cost of equipment, medication, specialized veterinary treatment surgeries and food such as shrimp, clams and lettuce, it costs roughly $2,000 to treat and release just one patient.

This Giving Zoo day, Brevard Zoo officials ask you to open your hearts and wallets to help them reach their goal of $10,000—enough to rehabilitate five patients.

If you donate through the online link below, you’ll receive periodic updates about the sea turtles whose lives you helped save.
