Jacob Flickinger

Aquarist Assistant


Originally from Indiana, I graduated with a B.S. in Marine Biology from Texas A&M University at Galveston to pursue my dream of working with sea turtles. Since then, I’ve worked at the South Carolina Aquarium and the Georgia Sea Turtle Center in their respective sea turtle rehabilitation departments and also spent a nesting season working with Loggerheads in South Carolina. Most recently, I was an intern at Sea Turtle, Inc. before joining the staff as the Aquarist Assistant.

I’m happy to remain here at Sea Turtle, Inc. and to continue to work with these amazing creatures!

Favorite Sea Turtle Species

Loggerhead! I spent a nesting season directly involved in their conservation efforts and they are the first species of sea turtle I ever worked with.
