One of the most beloved creatures near your Charleston beach house is the loggerhead sea turtle. It has become a mascot of sorts for the Lowcountry. These gentle giants have faced many threats to their survival. But now, with the new and improved, state-of-the-art turtle hospital at the SC Aquarium, as well as initiatives and laws to protect their nests, they’re doing better than they have in years.
