TURTLES TIMES THREE
Students explore the world of turtles, tortoises and terrapins and learn what adaptations turtles have to help them survive in their habitats.
Sea turtles live in the ocean but they nest on the beach. Students learn how mother sea turtles lay their eggs and what happens when the babies hatch.
THE TROUBLE WITH TURTLES
Turtles often nest on the same beaches where humans play. Students see how scientists and volunteers protect sea turtle nests when they are on beaches that are also used by humans.
TURTLES UNDER HUMAN CARE
Sometimes, turtles are injured or sick and need to be taken care of by humans. Students find out how the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher cares for their sea turtles.
