We stopped in here so that "Grandpa" could show my grandson how big some of the sea turtles get. There was a place for my grandson to explore on his terms and he enjoyed looking at all of the items.

What a great place to see how Brevard County's great people are helping to rehabilitate the Sea Turtles in distress. We took a large group of young people to visit the facility and the staff there couldn't have been nicer. Everyone had a great time an also an educatuional trip for the kids. Thanks for everything.

We went in to get some information and look around because we LOVE sea turtles ! The guy at the counter wouldn't look at us! He asked why we were there and we told him we wanted more information and that we loved sea turtles. He was rude! We had to keep asking questions and he didn't want to answer... More

I found the address to STPS on Trip Adivsor. Good selection of shirts, all sizes. During my visit here, a lifeguard from the nearby beach brought in a hatchling that was probably stranded or disoriented. The STPS took care of it and had others brought to them. Just really nice to know that people will help these endangered animals. I... More

The Preservation Society is crucial to the future of our sea turtles, and the knowledge these volunteers have is phenomenal. Gifts for turtle lovers, t-shirts, all benefit our sea turtles. GO!

Location is easy to find, parking is limited but free. The staff inside is very helpful and knowledgeable. T-shirt selection is the best if you are hunting turtle t-shirts. While we were there a baby turtle was brought in as they also provide turtle reduce services. Many books and other turtle informations is also available.

Love going in and visiting when in town! Great Volunteers! Ask about the night walking tours when the sea turtles are laying their eggs. Not your typical tourist attraction, which is great.
