After a record year of turtle strandings along the Northeast Atlantic Coast, Adventure Aquarium of Camden, NJ, is introducing new programs to increase awareness and allow easier accessibility for concerned ocean lovers to help. The aquarium has joined with the Wetlands Institute of New Jersey to produce helpful programs aimed at sea turtle protection and education. But the organizations need help from the public. Proceeds from specially-designed “I brake for Turtles” merchandise, from bracelets to magnets and pins, will directly go to the Wetlands Institute to improve current projects – these items will be available for purchase from Adventure Aquarium during its “Turtles: Journey of Survival” exhibit beginning March 24. In addition, aquarium guests may purchase a $1 donation card and may “adopt” a local terrapin with donation prices ranging from $10 to $500. Lastly, the aquarium is in need of enthusiastic, responsible volunteers to help maintain its efforts. For more information, and to find out how you can help, visit www.adventureaquarium.com.
