So the turtles that are kept here are only kept as needed. They are either there long term because they are disabled (naturally or from man made issues like pollution) or short term to ensure a safe entry into the ocean.

The time period between hatching and entering the ocean is the most vulnerable for sea turtles - so this is where the hatchery comes in! Hope that helps!
