Marine Science Center
Since its opening in 2002, the Marine Science Center has exceeded expectations as an environmental learning center. More than a million visitors have experienced the center's rich and varied offerings.
The combination of marine education and outreach with a sea turtle and seabird rehabilitation center provides a significant service that is unique. To our knowledge there is no other county-funded and operated sea turtle and seabird rehabilitation facility in the United States. This remarkable project has allowed Volusia County to stand at the forefront of county government efforts to educate our public about the marine resources of our area and to rehabilitate and release sea turtles and seabirds.
The spectacular assets provided by Volusia County beaches and waterways are an incredible natural playground for the 500,000 residents and the more than 9 million visitors who come to Volusia County each year to enjoy swimming, sunbathing, fishing, boating and many more outdoor activities. The center continues to grow and develop entertaining, educational experiences and timely coastal environmental messages to a diverse population of adults, children and students. The center reaches a wide range of people from different experiences and educational backgrounds to produce impassioned and informed stewards of the coastal environment.
