Terrific Turtles Head To Blackpool
A spectacular new refuge for freshwater turtles will be unveiled at SEA LIFE Blackpool this February half term and will provide visitors with a unique and exciting view into their world.
Launching 10 February, the new Turtle Shelter experience will take guests on a journey of how turtles live, the threats and hazards they face, plus a special periscope will allow visitors to see what a turtle experiences under water.
The specially designed attraction has been inspired by the shape and make-up of turtles, with all rockwork and materials taking reference from turtle shells, skin and structure.
As well as being a unique visitor attraction, Turtle Shelter will be a permanent sanctuary for turtles that have outgrown their former homes and a breeding centre for rare and endangered species. It will also become home for some of the large number of turtles that are illegally imported and confiscated by customs each year.
