Though primarily charged with conducting marine research, the facility will also serve as a resource for recovery of turtles who have been damaged or are at risk. The TAMUG Sea Life Facility offers a place, where the public can learn more about the lives of and threats to sea turtles, and what they can do to help. Turtles can be viewed from the facility's outreach center before they are returned to the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
