Sea Turtle at Sunny Beach
I'm sooo excited to tell you we had a turtle rescue at Sunny Beach this AM! My girls are visiting from Chicago, and we saw the seaweed coming in, so we went walking along the beach to check it out. And there was a young turtle stuck in it! We got him into shallow water, then I went to www.ridleyturtles.org website and called the number listed for help. The number for this area is 409-771-2872. The turtle rescue contact info is below this email.
The NOAA gals came right away to take him for rehab. They told us the seaweed sometimes brings turtles too.
It was a great experience for us all!
I've attached some photos for you, and I'm submitting this to the newspaper
