Clearwater Marine Aquarium is a working animal hospital with veterinarian technicians on staff to care for all injured animals that come through our doors. At our Surgical Suite, you have the opportunity to witness the work of our medical professionals. Everything – from routine physicals of resident otters to emergency surgeries on injured sea turtles – takes place right here in our surgical suite.
While you are visiting Mavis’s Rescue Hideaway, don’t forget to view the Safe Harbor Surgical Suite, the former location for on-site animal care, now used as the Water Quality Lab and preserved as a movie set from Dolphin Tale.
