The good work we do at our beach-side campus is designed to help promote the conservation of Florida’s coastal ecosystems with a special focus on threatened and endangered sea turtles.
LMC is one of the most visited cultural destinations in Palm Beach County. In 2017, LMC’s beach-side campus attracted over 350,000 visitors, nearly half of whom are from outside of Palm Beach County.
Our core focus areas are: education, research, and sea turtle rehabilitation, and our campus is widely known for our world class sea turtle hospital, our interactive exhibit hall, our 990 foot Juno Beach Pier, and our sea-side themed gift boutique.
