Turtle Release on St George’s Island, Florida
Talk about new beginnings. I had the exciting experience of releasing a sea turtle into the warm Gulf water off of St George’s Island in Florida.
I didn’t know what to expect when the Ranger told us to be at the turtle release today.
Sea turtles are warm water lifeforms. When a cold snap happens that chills the water they can go into a type of hibernation and are vulnerable.
The Greens were taken from St. Joseph’s Island in Florida and the others from Boston Harbor in Massachusetts.
Many rescue centers take them in, nurse them back to health and rerelease them into the wild.
We released eleven Green Sea turtles and eleven Kemp-Ripler Turtles.
The Greens will return to this area, they others will scatter up the Atlantic coast.
I'll have more photos on my blog. Blog http://barbaraedwardscomments.wordpress.com/
