Turtle hospital gears up to open for the season

Published: Thursday, May 22, 2014 at 12:16 PM.

After a record number of applications, this year’s crop of college-level summer interns has been selected and will arrive on May 25. It was tough to choose only eight when you have applicants that are outstanding in so many ways; but we did it, and now we’re excited to meet them and get them started. They’re coming from near (UNCW) and far (Alaska and California) with a variety of educational backgrounds and work experience. You’ll get to meet them over the course of the next few months in this column.

Summer tours just around the corner

We will open our doors to everyone beginning June 5. Days and hours can be found on our website (seaturtlehospital.org) and our Facebook page (The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation Center). Any upcoming releases will also be announced on the Facebook page, so check it out daily.
