Turtle Bay Exploration Park is proud to announce plans to build a new state-of-the-art Animal Recovery Center inside Wildlife Woods.

This is possible due to a generous $200,000 donation from Senator Maurice and Marianne Johannessen.

The multi-use care facility will provide space for the animals that need a break from their normal habitat. It will also offer guests the opportunity to experience the young animals in a nursery room environment. Veterinarians will also have a designated area to perform treatments on site.

CEO Michael Warren said, “We feel extremely fortunate to have benefactors like Maurice and Marianne Johannessen supporting Turtle Bay and our animal department. All of our animals are non-releasable and require human care and protection. As a result of the Johannessen’s generosity, our staff will now have a state-of-the-art recovery center to better serve these animals for years to come.”
