Until 1 January 2020, the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco invites visitors to an exhibition relating the epic journey undertaken by sea turtles.From Wednesday June 19, 2019 to Wednesday January 1, 2020, Musée océanographique de Monaco

Sea turtles appeared over 150 million years ago. They lived alongside the dinosaurs, but are now facing potential extinction due to threats such as collisions with ships, pollution, and poaching.

With the "Odyssey of the Sea Turtles", the Oceanographic Museum is aiming to raise awareness among young and old like, by inviting them to discover the  160 m3 rehabilitation tank and the life of the sea turtles with a fun new exhibition. The rehabilitation tank is not another aquarium, but allows the teams at the Monegasque Center for Care of Marine Species (CMSEM), which opened in April, to ensure that the turtles cared for can be safely returned to the sea.

This exhibition featuring these incredible reptiles will enchant the whole family!
