BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – The Sea Turtle Preservation Society announces the opening of the Turtle Nest, an information station and kiosk outside Cruise Terminal One in Port Canaveral, Florida.

Port Canaveral is Brevard County’s world-class cruise terminal, ranked as the second busiest cruise port in the U.S.

The kiosk will be open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, from 10 a.m. through 6 p.m.

Knowledgeable STPS volunteers with educational materials and activities will be on hand for residents and visitors to learn more about sea turtles, part of the society’s mission to help the animals survive.

Florida’s Space Coast is an important location in that effort—a significant percentage of three species of marine turtles nest in Brevard County.

“Brevard Beaches have become synonymous with our love for sea turtles. What we do in our community affects the survival of these turtles worldwide,” said Dave Cheney, a long time board member who directs marketing and helps transport injured sea turtles.

STPS and sea turtle related merchandise also will be for sale at the kiosk. Proceeds generated from activities like this help fund the organization.
