“Matthew the Sea Turtle”

“Matthew is an animal rescue. Much loved at Tybee Island Marine Science Center, but eventually it was time to say goodbye. He became healthy and ready to return. His laid back and lovable personality won the hearts of everyone. He’s since been released back into the ocean, where he no doubt continues to groove on.

Meanwhile, new animals are continuously rescued and nurtured until they can be returned to their natural habitats. The Marine Science Center has a gift shop with many interesting finds, as well as a small museum to see sea creatures, and learn about the animals and the ocean.” (Note: location of museum has since been moved, make sure you search for place and hours of operation if you’re planning a visit)
