What is the relationship between Loggerhead Marina and Loggerhead Marinelife Center?
Loggerhead Marina is committed to marine conservation. Therefore, Loggerhead Marina agreed to make a near seven-figure contribution to the Loggerhead Marinelife Center for the construction of a new 13,000 square-foot campus in Juno Beach, Florida. The Loggerhead Marinelife Center is a marine hospital and rehabilitation center whose mission is to assist injured sea life, especially endangered sea turtles, and educate the public about conservation of our treasured waterways.
We encourage our members to visit and support the Loggerhead Marinelife Center. We will be adding a kiosk to each marina to provide helpful tips on the water. Membership information for Loggerhead Marinelife Center will also be available.
