The South Carolina Aquarium will be releasing three sea turtles at 3pm on Sunday, July 26, at Beachwalker Park on Kiawah Island. The turtles Wadmalaw and Winyah are both Kemp’s Rileys, while Kiawah is a loggerhead sea turtle. During their release, seven year old Ethan from Ontario, Canada, will present the Aquarium with a $1000 check; an accumulation of the money he’s raised to help the sea turtle hospital in the two years since he first visited the Aquarium.
Please arrive early and Kiawah/Seabrook residents are encouraged to walk/bike since parking will most likely be tight.
