4 Executive Summary The Marine Science Center (Center) pened in June 2002 as an initiative f the Vlusia Cunty Gvernment t enhance the area s Envirnmental, Cultural, Heritage and Outdr (ECHO) awareness pprtunities. Initial phases f design and cnstructin cst $1.6 millin, with funds cntributed by the Flrida Inland Navigatinal District, the Vlusia Cunty ECHO prgram, and the cunty s general fund. In June 2004, the Center expanded t include a seabird rehabilitatin facility The Mary Keller Sea Bird Rehabilitatin Sanctuary. The Center is part f the Envirnmental Management Divisin f the Grwth and Resurce Management Department f Vlusia Cunty Gvernment. In the first 10 years f peratin, the Center has hsted mre than 580,000 visitrs, cared fr ver 17,000 sea turtles and mre than 9,000 birds, representing ver 175 different species. The Marine Science Center is hused in an elevated, ne-stry cracker-style facility nestled int the twisted live ak and red bay frest. Cmpnents f the facility include a 2,600 square ft exhibitin gallery, sea turtle bservatin terrace, surgical labratry, sea turtle rehabilitatin areas, the Mary Keller Sea Bird Rehabilitatin Sanctuary, a nature trail and bservatin twer, gift shp and rest rms. The Sea Turtle Rehabilitatin hspital is ne f the majr sea turtle rehabilitatin centers in the United States. The hspital is a fully-equipped medical facility with digital x-ray, minr surgery area, and rehabilitatin and quarantine tanks t prvide full service sea turtle rehabilitatin functins. The Seabird Rehabilitatin hspital is ne f the largest bird rehabilitatin centers in Flrida. The hspital is a fully equipped medical facility fr bird rehabilitatin including an ICU, cnditining rms, flight cages, and exhibitin areas fr nn-releasable birds f prey and seabirds. Veterinary Services are prvided thrugh a cntract with the University f Flrida, Cllege f Veterinary Medicine, Aquatic Animal Health Prgram. The University f Flrida prvides a part-time veterinarian wh prvides care fr all live animals at the Center. The Center is pen t the public ver 300 days per year, perating Tuesday-Saturday frm 10:00 a.m. 4:00 p.m. and n Sundays frm nn t 4:00 p.m. and clsed n Mndays, New Year s Day, Christmas Day, and Thanksgiving Day. The Center is perated as a service f Vlusia Cunty Gvernment t prvide an educatinal experience fr the public and t fulfill the requirements f the Habitat Cnservatin Plan/Incidental Take Permit (HCP/ITP). The adpted budget fr FY 12/13 is $1,164,367. Ttal Revenue has increased dramatically since pening. In the first full year f peratins, FY , the Center generated $266, Last year, FY , the Center generated $525, a 96% increase. The Center s annual attendance increased frm 47,277 in fiscal year t 73,825 in fiscal year a 56% increase. Attendance has increased dramatically in the last three years and is cntinuing t rise rapidly. In the last 12 mnths (June May 2013), the Center has had ver 80,300 visitrs. The ppularity f the Center is widespread the Center ranked as the #4 attractin in the Daytna Beach area by TripAdvisr. As f June 2013, 94% f the 132 unslic- 4

5 ited reviews f the Center n TripAdvisr rated us excellent r very gd. Our 4 ½ star rating earned their 2012 and 2013 Certificate f Excellence. The great success that the Marine Science Center has enjyed creates new and different challenges that require attentin including staffing, parking, space issues, utilities, and the ability t care fr the increase f turtles and birds t the hspitals. Parking is a majr issue that must be addressed. A high visitatin day can exceed 1,000 visitrs, with nly 15 designated paved parking spaces, 2 ADA accessible spaces, and 15 unpaved parking spaces acrss Lighthuse Drive. Currently, the exhibit space is less than 3,000 square feet the size f a nice hme -- and yet it accmmdated ver 80,000 visitrs in the last year. The current gift shp has less than 200 square feet and yet it generated ver $230,000 in grss sales in FY In additin, it is situated at the entrance t the exhibit area and all 80,000 visitrs have t g thrugh a narrw pening where gift shp custmers are making their selectins. The success f the sea turtle rehabilitatin prgram has made it ne f the majr sea turtle rehabilitatin centers in the United States. This success requires us t make a renewed cmmitment t imprving the medical facility. Currently, abut 700 square feet is devted t sea turtle medical functins. There are multiple uses in this space, many f which need t be separated. These same issues are als faced in the bird rehabilitatin center. T address these issues, the Center is planning an expansin t service the heavy public demand fr services and t upgrade the medical facilities, and t pssibly expand ur hspital functins t include manatee rescue, triage and rehabilitatin. The expansin wuld include new classrm space, lecture/public meeting space, visitr rientatin and exhibitin space, expanded gift shp, and imprved medical facilities. The expansin f the exhibit areas t include a sea turtle and shark exhibit will increase visitatin t the Center. Given the present trend in visitrs, this shuld bring the annual attendance t ver 100,000 visitrs per year. Extensin f the scpe f medical services t include manatees wuld undubtedly generate even greater attendance. These factrs will generate significant new revenues frm admissins and gift shp sales. This dcument prvides an verview f the peratins f the Center and a visin fr the future with gals, bjectives and strategies and a timeline t achieve this visin. 5

6 Missin The missin f the Marine Science Center is t: 1) create inspiring marine educatin experiences, which empwer ur guests, 2) prvide utstanding sea turtle and shrebird rehabilitatin, and 3) prmte the emerging field f cnservatin medicine. Visin T cntinue t prvide an utstanding envirnmental educatin and rehabilitatin center that advances the effrts f sea turtle, bird, and marine mammal rescue, rehabilitatin, and educatin. T expand the current facility thrugh a cmprehensive plan fr site develpment that will create a premier destinatin fr immersive, interactive, and innvative marine educatinal experiences. Marine Science Center Gals 1. Inspire castal stewardship by prviding an awe-inspiring experience. 2. Rescue and rehabilitate sick and injured sea turtles and birds. 3. Prmte the Center s missin and create cnservatin champins. 4. Achieve fiscal stability and success. 5. Expand the educatinal and rehabilitatin capabilities f the Center. 6

7 Backgrund Since its grand pening in 2002, the Marine Science Center (Center) has exceeded expectatins as an envirnmental learning center. Mre than half a millin visitrs have experienced the rich and varied fferings f the Center. The cmbinatin f marine educatin and utreach with a sea turtle and seabird rehabilitatin center prvides a significant service that is unique. T ur knwledge there is n ther cunty-funded and perated sea turtle and sea bird rehabilitatin facility in the United States. This remarkable prject has allwed Vlusia Cunty t stand at the frefrnt f cunty gvernment effrts t educate ur public abut the marine resurces f ur area and t rehabilitate and release sea turtles and sea birds. The spectacular assets prvided by Vlusia Cunty beaches and waterways are an incredible natural playgrund fr the 500,000 residents and the mre than 9 millin visitrs that cme t Vlusia Cunty each year t enjy swimming, sunbathing, fishing, bating and many mre utdr activities. The Center cntinues t grw and develp entertaining, educatinal experiences and timely castal envirnmental messages t a diverse ppulatin f adults, children and students. The Center reaches a wide 7

8 range f peple frm different experiences and educatinal backgrunds t prduce impassined and infrmed stewards f the castal envirnment. The Center ffers exceptinal educatinal experiences that challenge, enhance, and transfrm visitrs awareness f the castal envirnments arund them, and teach the imprtance f being gd stewards f ur fragile marine envirnment. Educatrs prvide frmal educatinal prgrams fr the thusands f schl children that visit the Center, as well as public prgrams, live animal demnstratins, special events, utreach prgrams and summer camps. Partnering with educatinal and research institutins, private and civic grups and businesses is anther imprtant key t successfully fulfilling the missin f the Marine Science Center. These partnerships strengthen the Center s ability t reach mre adults, children and students. Further develpment f these partnerships is crucial fr future successes. All f the Marine Science Center s prjects, whether planned as an exhibit expansin, r envisined as part f an institutinal expansin, are dependent n cntinued supprt f the Cunty Cuncil and Vlusia Cunty citizenry. Ecnmic and envirnmental factrs will cntinue t play a critical rle in the success f the Center. 8

9 Descriptin and Histry The Vlusia Cunty Marine Science Center (Center) is uniquely designed t prvide innvative and engaging educatinal pprtunities and t rescue and rehabilitate sea turtles and sea birds. Lcatin The Center is lcated in the Twn f Pnce Inlet in Vlusia Cunty. Lcated n Flrida s east cast with its famus Atlantic Ocean beaches and extensive saltwater lagns, Vlusia Cunty is a land sculpted by the sea. This area is hme t a magnificent array f wildlife, many f which are listed as endangered r threatened by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Lggerhead, green, leatherback, and hawksbill sea turtles use the same saltwater envirnments as d the endangered West Indian manatee, the Atlantic salt marsh snake, peregrine falcn, wd strk, rseate spnbill, and gpher trtise. The wrld famus beaches f Vlusia Cunty are imprtant nesting habitats fr these prtected species and critical wintering habitat fr the endangered piping plver. The area just ff-shre is a critical habitat fr the endangered nrthern right whale. Mre than 365 species f birds have been recrded frm Vlusia Cunty. Vlusia Cunty is hme t the headwaters f the Indian River Lagn, which is cnsidered ne f the mst prductive estuaries n earth. The lagn systems f Vlusia Cunty are the nrthernmst envirnment in the United States that supprt all three species f mangrves. These mangrves and salt marshes are hme t an incredibly prductive fishery. Histry These fragile marine resurces are under tremendus pressures frm an expanding ppulatin, rapid grwth, and the millins f turists and residents wh make recreatinal use f the Vlusia Cunty castal areas. The Center was established t serve as an imprtant educatinal institutin t imprve the public s understanding f the marine envirnments f Vlusia Cunty. In additin, the cunty identified an imprtant pprtunity t address the cncerns f driving n 9

10 ur beaches and the ptential impacts f this activity n prtected species f sea turtles. The cunty established the sea turtle rehabilitatin center and the bird rehabilitatin center t mitigate the impact f beach driving as part f the Habitat Cnservatin Plan and the Incidental Take Permit (HCP/ITP) develped by the cunty in cncert with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Flrida Fish and Wildlife Cnservatin Cmmissin. The Center pened in June 2002 as an initiative f the Vlusia Cunty Gvernment t enhance the area s Envirnmental, Cultural, Heritage and Outdr (ECHO) awareness pprtunities. At the time f pening, the Center cnsisted f the primary educatin and exhibit area and the sea turtle rehabilitatin facility. Initial phases f design and cnstructin cst nearly $1.6 millin, with funds cntributed by the Flrida Inland Navigatinal District, the Vlusia Cunty ECHO prgram, and the cunty general fund. In June 2004, the Center expanded t include a seabird rehabilitatin facility The Mary Keller Sea Bird Rehabilitatin Sanctuary. In the first 10 years f peratin, the Center has hsted mre than 580,000 visitrs, cared fr ver 17,000 sea turtles and mre than 9,000 birds representing ver 175 different species. Facility The Center is hused in an elevated, ne-stry cracker-style facility nestled int a twisted live ak and red bay frest. Cmpnents f the facility include a 2,600 square ft exhibitin gallery with exhibits n mangrve, dune, estuarine, and jetty ecsystems. Live animal areas and aquariums highlight many species f saltwater fish; extic species intrduced int Flrida; freshwater turtles; cral reef ecsystems; a 5,000 galln artificial reef habitat aquarium; and a 1,300 galln tuch tank featuring cwnse rays and ther species. Other Center cmpnents include the classrm/labratry, sea turtle bservatin terrace, surgical labratry, sea turtle rehabilitatin areas, the Mary Keller Sea Bird Rehabilitatin Sanctuary, nature trail and bservatin twer, gift shp and rest rms. 10

11 The exhibit area f the Center includes innvative and dynamic displays. The exhibit hall prvides an inviting atmsphere that draws visitrs in t discver the wnders f Vlusia Cunty s castal envirnments. Individuals f all backgrunds and physical abilities are able t learn frm and be inspired by the exhibits. The Center prperty is hme t bth sea turtle and sea bird rehabilitatin facilities. Each area has specialized equipment and infrastructure t huse and supprt the care and management f these Vlusia Cunty castal treasures. The infrastructure includes mre than 5,000 gallns f pls fr the sea turtles and 6,000 square feet f aviary and bird enclsures fr avian rehabilitatin. The Center s classrm and labratry dubles as public exhibitin space with hands-n marine specimens and an array f micrscpes where visitrs can examine a wide cllectin f interesting marine subjects. Aquariums huse lcal fish and invertebrates. Marine science prgrams cntinuusly run in the classrm t prvide additinal educatinal experiences. Crafts are available t pique the interest f yung visitrs. The space cnverts t classrm use with 15 micrscpes fr examining planktn samples r labratry use fr dissectins and ther activities. The Center includes a gift shp, which ffers visitrs the pprtunity t take a variety f memries hme as well as teaching pprtunities in the frm f bks and puzzles. Even the plush animals link the child t the experiences and messages f the Center they will nt frget. The Gift Shp prvides an imprtant surce f revenue fr the Center. Once utside the Center cmplex, visitrs enjy a bardwalk thrugh a maritime frest that leads t a tw-stry bservatin twer with a spectacular view verlking Pnce de Len Inlet. On these paths visitrs can watch nature in actin in this unique habitat. 11

21 Accmplishments Frm 2010 t date, staff identified and cmpleted a number f prjects t enhance the visitr experience at the Center and enrich animal care and rehabilitatin. A grant f ver $100,000 frm the Sea Turtle Cnservancy prvided funds fr a majr expansin f the sea turtle quarantine life supprt systems. Prjects als included the installatin f a tuch tank in the display gallery, funded by the Friends f the Marine Science Center, and the redesign f the gallery t imprve the flw f visitrs thrugh the exhibits. The tuch tank has prven t be a significant asset t the displays while prviding an imprtant educatinal pprtunity. The exhibit gallery redesign has ensured that visitrs enter the facility thrugh the main entrance t view the turtle rehabilitatin tanks. Other prjects have included imprvements t the life supprt and lighting in the aquariums. These prjects were funded by the Friends f the Marine Science Center and thrugh a grant frm the Pnce Inlet Prt Authrity. An utdr amphitheater was cnstructed in thrugh a partnership with a By Scut trp and the Friends f the Marine Science Center, prviding a much needed utdr seating area fr grup rientatin and educatinal prgramming. An additinal Eagle Scut prject, with supprt frm the Prt Authrity, will cnstruct 2 raptr cages fr the glve-trained birds f prey. The prject is scheduled t begin in These new changes and the success in marketing the Center have spurred a cntinuing rapid grwth in visitatin in the last few years. The Center experienced a remarkable 58% grwth in 21

22 visitatin in just fur years. Our ppularity grws in the cmmunity as we cntinue t develp partnerships with ther facilities. The ppularity f the Center is widespread the Center ranked as the #4 attractin in the Daytna Beach area by TripAdvisr. As f June 2013, 94% f the 132 unslicited reviews f the Center n TripAdvisr rated us excellent r very gd. Our 4 ½ star rating earned their 2012 and 2013 Certificate f Excellence. One family at a time we are making a difference. Our 500,000 th visitr 22

23 Challenges The great success that the Center has enjyed creates new and different challenges that require attentin including staffing, parking, space issues, utilities, and the ability t care fr an increase in turtles and birds t the hspitals. The increasing number f visitrs generates additinal demands fr services prvided by staff including educatinal experiences, general assistance t visitrs, and ensuring the flw f visitrs thrugh the center. Increasing ur attendance while maintaining a premium educatinal experience is a cntinuing challenge, especially with the limitatins f ur physical plant. Parking Parking is a majr issue that must be addressed. All activities that increase the attendance t the facility will need t take int cnsideratin the current limited parking. Currently, there are times when all parking spaces are filled and visitrs have t search fr ther parking in the area, which is very limited. The lack f parking als affects staff and vlunteers. Parking issues must be addressed bth in the shrt term and MSC existing paved parking lt with 15 spaces t accmmdate 80,000 annual visitrs A high visitatin day can exceed 1,000 visitrs. T accmmdate visitr parking, the Center has 15 designated paved parking spaces and 2 ADA accessible spaces. There are in any lng term plans. an additinal 15 unpaved parking spaces acrss Lighthuse Drive that visitrs can use as they becme Unpaved parking alng Lighthuse Drive 23

24 available. These spaces require visitrs t crss Lighthuse Drive. Designated staff and vlunteer parking is available fr 4 vehicles at the unimprved driveway t the sea turtle hspital. An additinal 3 spaces fr staff, vlunteers and Center vehicles are lcated adjacent t the main parking lt. This is inadequate fr the needs f the Center and can result in a negative visitr experience. Entrance and Signage One challenge facing visitrs t the Center is the lack f an bvius entrance t the facility. In the current cnfiguratin there are tw entrances t the prperty and this creates cnfusin fr visitrs. A mdified entrance and wayfinding system is needed t imprve the visitr experience. In additin, the rf f the Center presents a gd pprtunity t advertise t the nearby visitrs f the Lighthuse. Main pedestrian entrance Figure 1 Parking lt entrance n Lighthuse Drive 24

25 Exhibit Space The Center has experienced tremendus success in attracting visitrs t the facility. Visitatin is up 58% since FY This rapid grwth in visitatin has far exceeded ur current capacity and the small exhibit space can be s jammed that it negatively impacts the experience. Currently the exhibit space is less than 3,000 square feet the size f a nice hme -- and yet has accmmdated ver 80,000 visitrs in the last year. In ur tw busiest days in 2013, the Center hsted ver 1,000 visitrs n each day and ver 6,600 visitrs in 10 days. Gift Shp The current gift shp is less than 200 square feet and yet it generated ver $230,000 in grss sales in FY In additin, it is situated at the entrance t the exhibit area and all visitrs have t g thrugh a 36 wide pening where gift shp custmers and visitrs are making their selectins. 25

26 Classrm and Meeting Space The grwth and demand fr ur varied educatinal prgrams can, at times, burst ur capacity at the seams. Thusands f schl children visit each year and we have utgrwn the small 15- seat classrm. The current classrm is als an pen public exhibit space and an area fr craft activities fr yung children. The multiple uses f this space create cnflicts that lessen the visitr s verall experience and limit the variety f prgrams that can be prvided. The classrm has t be clsed t the public t prvide rganized schl prgrams. Currently, there is nt a space that can be used fr evening prgrams. The existing classrm is nt large enugh fr lectures with mre than 25 peple and has permanently installed lab tables that, while useful fr lab prgrams fr schls, limit the ptential uses f the space. This space prblem requires the use f utside deck areas fr prgrams. 26

27 Animal Treatment Areas The success f the sea turtle rehabilitatin prgram has made it ne f the majr sea turtle rehabilitatin centers in the United States. This success requires us t make a renewed cmmitment t imprving the medical facility. Currently, there is a very small space devted t sea turtle medical functins. The current space is abut 700 square feet. In this space, there are 4 staff ffices, x- ray space, treatment rm, anesthesia and xygen equipment, micrscpe and bld analysis lab, animal fd preparatin, refrigeratin and freezer space fr sea turtle fd and specimen strage, washer and dryer laundry facility, and zne water sterilizatin equipment. Many f these functins need t be separated. There is n sterile space t perfrm medical prcedures n the sea turtles. The fd preparatin areas need t be separated frm the examinatin and treatment areas. The x-ray space needs its wn dedicated area. Laundry facilities need t be separate frm the treatment and fd preparatin spaces. Office spaces shuld be separated frm fd preparatin and medical areas. 27
