CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

The South Carolina Aquarium is expanding its sea turtle area. 

Officials cut the ribbon on a "Sea Turtle Recovery Gallery" on Wednesday, which is an extension of the Zucker Family Sea Turtle Recovery. 

The expansion comes thanks to a $300,000 donation from a Charleston-based manufacturing company.

The area will include digital elements, art and a collection of plastics removed from sea turtles to further warn guest about the harm that the material can have on the environment.
