Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center

The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center located in Surf City, North Carolina is involved with the conservation and preservation of all species of marine turtles, both in the water and on the beach. 

We accomplish this through the rescue, care, and release of sick and injured sea turtles, public education regarding the plight of sea turtles and the threat of their extinction, and learning opportunities for students of biology, wildlife conservation, and veterinary medicine from around the world. A nonprofit organization, we view our work as a privilege and are honored to work with these magnificent creatures.

New volunteers typically begin with open house tours, those 3 to 4 hours in the afternoon during the summer when we are open to the public.  Volunteers staff the learning stations and the gift shop during this time.  Don’t worry, we will help you with the facts. Volunteers working directly with sea turtle care typically work one morning per week, although hours vary depending on the number of patients.  These volunteers are also required to help with open house one day per week.

We are located at 302 Tortuga Lane, (Mainland) Surf City. Take the turn from Rts. 50/210 onto Charlie Medlin Drive (Shipwreck Point Mini Golf is your landmark for this road.) Follow the road onto the gravel section and through the round-about. We are the only building on Tortuga.
