The Exhibits Department at the NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island is trying to put together an exhibit in the Aquarium about sea turtles and rehabilitation using N.E.S.T. photos and videos. Their goal is to have this exhibit open in early June.
N.E.S.T. is very grateful for this opportunity to work with the Aquarium on this special project, and excited to relay the stories of our turtles that we have helped rehabilitate and release back into their own environment.
In order to make this happen the exhibits department is looking for photos that tell N.E.S.T.‘s story in relation to the rehab facility:
1. photos of the original rehab and how it’s changed over the years
2. photos of volunteers with live strandings on the beach, in the rehab
3. any other photos or video of live stranding response and rehab situations
If you have any of these items in your N.E.S.T. archive and you would like to contribute, please contact the aquarium staff listed below:
Olivia Burrus (husbandry curator) or Teresa Kelly (exhibits technician that will be handling media). Items can be dropped off after making arrangements with Olivia or Teresa (NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island 252-473-3494). Photos, cds, video, and dvds should be well labeled with the name of the person loaning them, the specific contents, and name of those who need photo credit.
