The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center
Over vacation my family visited The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center . It is really wonderful place on Topsail Island that takes care of stranded and injured sea turtles. They also help protect sea turtle nesting sites.
The biggest surprise during our visit was runnning into Weslie Detwiler volunteering at the center! Weslie is a Senior at the high school and she is participating in the center's intership problem. I am DEFINATELY going to ask Weslie to come and speak to our class about her experiences. How cool will that be?!
