By Connie PletlSURF CITY – The new Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center became one step closer to reality last week as volunteers, community members and area officials gathered for a groundbreaking ceremony.
At the event on May 20, Executive Director Jean Beasley thanked everyone who had helped and supported the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center, also known as the turtle hospital, throughout the years.
“This is a dream come true,” she said.
Beasley, along with members of the turtle hospital board, Surf City Town Council and those instrumental in getting the new turtle hospital off the ground, grabbed shovels and broke ground for the new facility.
