The Turtle Hospital - Riccione
The Turtle Hospital in Riccione is a non-profit organisation founded in 1988 that is dedicated to the protection of the marine ecosystem and has also been involved in the rehabilitation of sea turtles since 1994!
It plays a very important role in spreading environmental awareness so as to educate new generations to live in respect of the marine habitat!
In addition to the hospital, the facility features venues for exhibitions and photographic tours of Adriatic marine life, conference rooms, educational workshops and even a qualified library.
The Cetacean Foundation is suitable for all ages, so families or schools will have the opportunity to undertake educational workshops, visits, educational activities and much more:
- Guided turtle tours daily: 9.30-12.30/ 14.30-17.30;
- Workshops on large marine vertebrates and beach treasures: Tuesday to Saturday;
- Sea turtle releases and many other unforgettable experiences;
- Internships and courses for volunteers.
An additional experience for true lovers of nature and its inhabitants is that of being able to 'adopt' a turtle from a distance, thus supporting its rehabilitation and return to the sea!
