Good News for Rescued Sea Turtles!

Parker 4

Last week, we reported that almost 200 Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtles from the Cape Cod area had been brought to various facilities in Florida for rescue.

Today, Keys News reported that nine of 30 turtles that were sent to Marathon Turtle Hospital have made a full recovery and will be released this week off North Florida.

The nine turtles were transported from the Marathon Turtle Hospital to the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, where they are scheduled to be released later this week, according to Marathon Turtle Hospital Manager Bette Zirkelbach.

Unfortunately, three of the turtles died due to pneumonia-related illnesses last weekend.

We are wishing these nine good luck as they are released!
