Construction Update

Thanks to YOU, we have resumed construction of our new marine animal hospital. Last week, we applied a sealer to the concrete floor of the sea turtle ward in order to maintain a clean and sanitary hospital environment.  This week we'll be working on plumbing and painting.  Visit our website for the latest information.
