Construction is progressing well on the STAR Center (Sea Turtle Assistance and Rehabilitation Center) at the NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island.

The Center will have several more tanks than the 5 we currently operate. One or two will be larger to better accommodate our larger patients. It will also have a separate treatment room. And, best of all, visitors will be able to watch what happens there! The exterior of the building should be completed around the first of the year. Then comes the task of outfitting it. Stay tuned for information about how you can help.
