Sea Turtle Release

I'm happy to report that 8-10 of the green sea turtles rescued from the cold stranding event of mid-January in South Padre Island, Texas, were to be released on Monday, February 19th. The remaining 90+ turtles were scheduled for release on February 20th and 21st. A very small number of turtles remain in rehab for illness or injury, but the rest of the survivors are in all likelihood back in the Gulf of Mexico now. Hooray!!!!

That's all the information I was able to find to date on the turtles. If there's anything more to report, I'll do so after the 3-part series which will begin in my next post.

P.S. Sorry for the long silence. Sometimes life gets in the way.
