Le Seaquarium accueille notamment au sein de ses locaux un centre de soins associatif créé en 2003 le CESTMed (centre d’Etudes et de Sauvegarde des Tortues marine de Méditerranée). Cette structure agit avant tout pour la protection et la conservation des tortues marines en mer Méditerranée en réhabilitant en milieu naturel des tortues marines blessées qui ne survivraient pas sans intervention humaine et sans soin. Il prend en charge les tortues marines de tout le littoral méditerranéen français. Ce centre permet aussi de faire de la recherche sur la biologie de ces animaux afin de mieux les comprendre et les préserver et de mettre en place des actions de sensibilisation vers un large public."

The Seaquarium also hosts within its premises an associative care center created in 2003 the CESTMed (Center for Studies and Safeguarding Marine Turtles in the Mediterranean). This structure acts primarily for the protection and conservation of sea turtles in the Mediterranean Sea by rehabilitating damaged marine turtles in natural habitats that would not survive without human intervention and without care. It supports marine turtles throughout the French Mediterranean coastline. This center also allows research to be carried out on the biology of these animals in order to better understand and preserve them and to put in place awareness-raising actions towards a large public.
