Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa and the sea turtle hospital at Loggerhead Marinelife Center recently announced their new community partnership to better protect the area’s beaches and sea turtles around the world.
As part of the partnership, Eau Palm Beach guests will have the opportunity to enjoy special offerings. For example, the resort’s restaurant Breeze Ocean Kitchen is offering the “Lagerhead” beer, locally produced by Due South Brewery. A portion of the beer sales will be donated back to LMC.
Guests of the resort will also be able to attend educational sea turtle programs before the beginning of nesting season in January, February and March.
Eau Palm Beach has also taken conservation measures such as replacing plastic straws for paper straws in its pool deck area.
To honor Eau Palm Beach’s support of LMC, the center has named a loggerhead sea turtle patient Eau-tis (Eau is pronounced like “o” and means “water” in French). Eau-tis was found in the Intracoastal Waterway in Jupiter and was anemic and suffering from hypoglycemia when found. You can track Eau-tis’ progress at marinelife.org/eau-tis.
