Gumbo Limbo Nature Center

Gumbo Limbo logo


Our sea turtle patients and residents are currently visiting other facilities and receiving exceptional treatment and care as we enhance and transition our Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Program to the Gumbo Limbo Coastal Stewards. 

During the transition, Gumbo Limbo Nature Center will remain OPEN, however, the Sea Turtle Rehab Program and its related facility areas will be TEMPORARILY CLOSED. 

We look forward to our resident sea turtles return and for rescue, rehabilitation, and release operations to resume at our facility. Learn more about the transition.

In the meantime, we invite you to visit the other great areas of the Nature Center including the trails, gopher tortoises, aquariums, butterfly garden and exhibits.
