A place for turtle preservation activities. A good place to go with kids. Doesn't look like it is finished yet. Mostly all water turtles are present
Excellent and knowledgable tour guide provides impressive insight into Turtle happenings. Wonderful selection of specimens and very inexpensive entrance fee.
