KURE BEACH, NC (WECT) – Juvenile loggerhead turtles at the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher now have a larger space to swim and grow.

Crews recently finished renovations to expand the sea turtle exhibit at the aquarium so visitors can have a more engaging experience.

The new display includes three areas:

  • a life-sized bronze sea turtle sculpture perfect for family photo opportunities
  • a sea turtle swim area
  • a visual conservation message

Visitors can check out a 360-degree view of a juvenile loggerhead with the new exhibit.

Right now there are two juvenile loggerhead sea turtles and a green sea turtle at the Aquarium.
