Swoon Over Sustainable Valentine’s Day Specials at Loggerhead Marinelife Center 

Juno Beach, FL – Lock eyes with Valentine’s Day deals, and sustainable choices, at Loggerhead Marinelife Center (LMC). In January and February 2019, LMC collected 110 balloons during the Center’s beach cleanups. Balloons, which are common gifts for Valentine’s Day, pollute our oceans and pose a threat to marine life. This year, ditch the heart-shaped balloons, and other items that create waste. Instead, celebrate love with unique sea turtle adoptions, gift store steals, and special evening guided tours. Now until February 14th, explore the Center’s one-of-a-kind gifts and experiences for your loved ones this Valentine’s Day.


Send the love of ocean conservation to your sentimental valentine with an enhanced sea turtle adoption package. Enhanced ($60), deluxe ($100) and name hatchling adoptions ($150) ordered before or on February 9th will include a special “message in a bottle” and a personalized adoption certificate. Adoption packages will directly benefit the continued care and treatment of sick and injured sea turtles. E-adoptions will also be available after February 9th to receive a virtual Valentine’s Day adoption via email. Adoptions are online only while supplies last.


From February 7th to the 14th, shop all things lovely at LMC’s gift store. Purchase in-person or online for 20 percent off of Shanore Jewelry and Inis body products. Score extra gifts as well, such as a free heart patterned Swedish dishcloth, with $50 or more e-store purchases.


Spend quality time with friends, family members, or a significant other during a special evening guided tour on Thursday, February 13th. From 6 pm to 7 pm, indulge in light chocolate bites and champagne bubbles on the tour, including a picture with Fletch and an adoption certificate to take home. Tours are $30 per person. Parents can spark a date night, too, on Friday, February 14th with LMC’s Ocean Explorers After Dark program. Children ages 6 to 10 can be dropped off at 5:30 pm to participate in a tour of our Outdoor Sea Turtle Hospital, interactive activities, lessons, and complimentary pizza from 6 pm to 9 pm. Registration is $35 for parents to enjoy a relaxing night to themselves.


At LMC, you can find something fun and eco-friendly for every valentine this coming holiday! For more information, please visit marinelife.org.
