Rehabbed Sea Turtles Released

Coast Guard returns turtle to sea off North Carolina coast

Given all the bad news we’ve had as of late, here’s something to smile about:
FORT MACON, N.C. – A crew aboard Coast Guard Cutter Staten Island assisted the North Carolina Sea Turtle Project with releasing six rehabilitated turtles into the Gulf Stream off the coast of North Carolina, March 24, 2011. The turtles were cared for by members of the Sea Turtle Project for reasons ranging from being blown in by a storm, being cold stunned or being struck by propeller blades, included a small Kemp’s Ridley, four juvenile Loggerheads and a yearling Loggerhead.
