(August 2019 News) The Pine Knoll Shores Aquarium received word on August 16, 2019 that their video on sea turtle conservation was chosen as the first place winner by the National Association of Zoos and Aquariums in their series “Party for the planet”.
The donation will benefit the AZA Saving Animals From Extinction (SAFE) Sea Turtle Conservation Action Plan for North Carolina.
In July of 2019, the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores was notified that their video was chosen as one of the top ten finalist for the $25,000 prize.
This Carteret County NC aquarium is a local standout in sea turtle conservation education, research, and activism for vulnerable and rare turtles.
Congratulations to all the staff and researches that volunteer and work at our local aquarium.
