SVF Eco-Tour Station 1 - Marine Animal Hospital

The Little Fishing Town Marine Animal Hospital is where Sunny and Octavia get taken after they are foul-hooked by Mr. Pidder. In this exhibit on our Florida Keys eco-tour the children meet aquarists and marine animal veterinarians who are helping to rehabilitate and restore over a hundred species of marine animals.

Our rich diversity is thanks to the folks at Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratory in Panacea, FL. The children love the opportunity to hold a crab or a starfish or to watch a jellyfish or shrimp swim around the tank. For many of these children, this is their first up close encounter with live marine animals.
