Loggerhead Marinelife Center is sea turtle hospital and educational center that hosts beach walks at nights, holds camps, and most importantly cares for injured and sick sea turtles which guests can visit. It gets its name from the Loggerhead sea turtle. These turtles are really cool. The best ones are the hatchlings, or babies. They hatch from their eggs that are buried on the beach and at night they crawl out to the ocean, heading towards the moonlight. Unfortunately, they sometimes don't make it all the way and that is where sea turtle hospitals and other marine centers come in. These sea turtles are cool and they are also endangered. That means that we need to be extra careful. Some of the ways that you can tell a loggerhead from other sea turtles are by the number of scoots (sections of the shell) on the shell (carapace). Sea turtles are solitary creatures, which means that they tend to live on their own. They travel throughout the ocean once they are adults, but when they are hatchlings they live in a seaweed known as Sargassum. Loggerheads are really fascinating creatures.
