While we were in Florida, we got to check out the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center in Boca Raton, which we hadn’t been to previously. The cool thing about Gumbo Limbo is their turtle rescue. They are involved in rescuing and releasing rehabilitated sea turtles as well as taking care of sea turtle hatchlings. The turtles that were living at Gumbo Limbo while we were there were all named after Harry Potter characters!
We also enjoyed watching the fish in the various aquariums.
There is an area where the Florida Atlantic University does research on sea turtles. These baskets are each inhabited by a small turtle!
Outside, there is a boardwalk trail that was closed when we were there, and a path that leads to the Intracoastal Waterway.
This path also went through a butterfly garden.
We have enjoyed visiting many nature centers in Florida, and this was our first that focused on marine life!
