Historic Hollywood Beach Home Houses Sea Turtle Sanctuary




Captain the Green Sea Turtle

NSU’s Marine Environmental Education Center (MEEC) is located at the Carpenter House, a house that was built in 1941 by the Carpenter family. The site features NSU’s very own green turtle, as well as an interactive Interpretive Center with displays ranging on topics from sea turtle conservation to marine debris.

In a recent interview with ABC Local 10, Derek Burkholder, Ph.D., director, NSU’s Marine Environmental Center, said “NSU’s been doing a lot of great work looking at sea turtle research, shark research, and coral reefs for many years.”
