Celebrating Sea Monkey Day with new exhibit at Sea Life Concord

The new exhibit will have a brand new rescued sea turtle featured in the 5,000-gallon exhibit where guests can learn how rescued sea turtles are cared for.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - Sea Turtle Rescue Center, a new exhibit at SEA LIFE Charlotte-Concord will officially be opening on World Ocean’s Day June 8th.

Sea Monkeys, aka Brine Shrimp, are incredible creatures that originate from salt lakes, ponds, and temporary water systems.

With a max size of 0.5 inches, Brine Shrimp are small but they can be a very nutritious meal for many small fish.

SEA LIFE Charlotte-Concord cultures two different life stages of brine to feed to the collection.

The 5,000 gallon exhibit will feature a newly rescued sea turtle where guests will be able to learn more about their care.

SEA LIFE Charlotte-Concord has North Carolina’s only Ocean Tunnel where guests can come face to fin with sharks, a rescued sea turtle, stingrays, and more.
