LMC’s current campus debuted in 2007 to great fanfare, welcoming 100,000 guests. In 2017, LMC’s campus welcomed a record-setting 350,000+ guests and offered the largest portfolio of services and programming in the history of our Center, making the campus one of the top visited cultural destinations in Palm Beach County.
Over the past few years, LMC made significant progress in setting a strong foundation of fundraising during our quiet phase. 2017 marked the launch of the Waves of Progress expansion campaign, which will allow the Marinelife center to rehabilitate more sea turtle patients, educate more students, and welcome additional guests and visiting scientists from around the globe.
Loggerhead Marinelife Center broke ground Wednesday on a multimillion-dollar expansion to enhance its mission of sea turtle and ocean conservation.
The center raised $12 million for its Waves of Progress expansion.
The 27,000-square-foot addition will double the center’s hospital capacity and research laboratory.
The project is expected to be complete by 2022.
