Loggerhead Marinelife Center – Juno Beach

Posted by Lorea Thomson on Wednesday, September 28th, 2022 at 2:20pm.

The Loggerhead Marinelife Center located at 14200 U.S. Highway 1 in Juno Beach asks that residents think globally and act locally. Due to potential impacts of hurricane Ian on our area this week, Loggerhead Marinelife Center and the Juno Beach Pier will be CLOSED today (Wednesday, September 28th) and will remain closed until the storm passes and assessments are made.  Please stay off the beaches and remain cautious.

Marine debris is a global issue. It is not unique to one individual, one organization, or one country, but just like our ocean, it is something we all share as citizens of planet Earth. Human-made items that enter the marine environment travel. The ocean's currents act like conveyor belts, transporting debris from one beach to another across the globe. 

Think of the vicinity you are in. Join in on a Loggerhead Marinelife Center beach cleanup by opting for a Connected Current Cleanup. In addition to your beach cleanup experience with Loggerhead Marinelife Center, you will fund a beach cleanup conducted by a community led the Marinelife Center and partner organizations in a location connected to Florida by the ocean's currents.
