Conservancy of Southwest Florida offers last chance to see some of the Turtles on the Town loggerhead sculptures and the real resident loggerhead, Betsy.
See the sea turtles
For two weeks 15 of the final Turtles on the Town sculptures are on display. You can see them at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida Nature Center, now through March 23.
Online Auction Open
Now is your chance to give the turtles permanent homes in our community. We urge you to show your support for this project by bidding at our online auction. The online auction is open now and will end at 7:30 p.m. on March 23, 2016.
No place for a turtle at your home? Please consider bidding on a turtle to go to a local nonprofit or public space. We will be happy to work with you to find a suitable home.

Say Goodbye to Betsy
While you’re visiting the Turtles on the Town exhibit, you will want to say goodbye to Betsy, the Conservancy’s beloved loggerhead.
Betsy is now large enough to be released into the wild. As soon as conditions are right she will be released into the Ten Thousand Islands.
See her one last time in the Dalton Discovery Center before she is off to start her new life.
