On April 5, N.E.S.T. and the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island (NCARI) hosted Girl Scout Troop #2043. The troop had organized a sea turtle workshop in Northern Virginia. Entry to their workshop required participants to bring Rehab items in support of our new STAR center (Sea Turtle Assistance and Rehabilitation). The troop’s trip to the OBX was to deliver the numerous items that they had collected. The troop was rewarded by having an in depth behind-the-scenes aquarium tour lead by Shannon Brooks, Aquarium Volunteer Coordinator. We would like to thank Shannon and the troop for all of their support!
