Ogasawara Marine Center, aka Turtle Center, has been breeding many energetic green turtles. In the sea turtle class, you can learn lots of surprising facts about sea turtles by watching and touching live turtles. You can join a sea turtle release program, in which you polish the tortoiseshell of a turtle, attach a tag to the turtle, and release it from the beautiful beach in front of the center.
