Sea Turtle and Marine Life Support

This campaign ended on August 30, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Nova Southeastern University by clicking here!

The Marine Environmental Education Center (MEEC) at the Carpenter House fosters a culture of care for our marine life and coastal environments. It was established as a partnership between Broward County and Nova Southeastern University to provide outstanding marine education, interactive learning, and research with a focus on endangered sea turtles.  

In the past few months, the MEEC has been closed to the public, but that has not stopped NSU students and researchers from their mission of educating and protecting. The MEEC continues to care for marine life and has even launched a free educational webinar series that is offered Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1 p.m. weekly.

With the facilities closed, however, it has been difficult to gain financial support from visitors and school programming. Help the MEEC continue its mission of increasing conservation awareness, animal care, education and action in a way that ultimately results in greater protection of our marine and coastal environments.
