Happy #GivingTuesday from the Turtles!Today, November 29, 2016 is #GivingTuesday. It’s a day to celebrate those causes that are important to us, and why we care. Click here to support the National Marine Life Center.
Today is also #TurtleTuesday. This is particularly appropriate because today we are admitting 11 new sea turtles. These are in addition to the 15 we admitted on Sunday. And the four we already had in our hospital.
You also make it possible to care for our eight headstarting red bellied cooters, an endangered species of fresh water turtle, as well as our two box turtles and one diamondback terrapin whose illnesses and injuries prevent them from being back into the wild. Thank you.
You help us rehabilitate seals. You help us learn more about wildlife health and our ocean ecosystem through our veterinary science program. You help us inspire the next generation of ocean conservationists through our environmental education program. Thank you.
We’d like to learn more about YOU! Included below is a #GivingTuesday #UNselfie template, or make your own! Please write why you support NMLC, take a photo of yourself holding the sign, then post your unselfie on our Facebook Page, on Twitter, or on Instagram. Please tag #NationalMarineLifeCenter on your photo. Or, simply respond to this e-mail attaching a photo and we’ll post it on our Facebook page.
You can also help by making a tax-deductible donation to the National Marine Life Center. On behalf of our 26 new sea turtles, Thank you!
