Turtle Cay Research Center

Seen here is the turtle research station on Turtle Cay. Note the waterfront condos which are most likely owned by the government of the Southern Islands. The Research Center includes pens for injured sea turtles which are prone to consuming plastic trash and debris from the water. This is a privately funded facility, partially supported by other conservational causes such as the World Tortoise Foundation. They also do outreach and education on the dangers of plastic to the marine environment.
