Join the crew of the Dauphin Island Sea Lab to see live turtles found in coastal Alabama and learn about the amazing lives of turtles! Suitable audience: content is directly aligned with 7th and 9th grade science/biology classes; however, other middle school students and high school marine biology, zoology, aquascience and environmental science classes may find content relevant.
