Sea Turtle Stranding Season Update
Fall 2017 was slow to provide the characteristic "stranding" weather that marks the start of cold-stun sea turtle season—cold fronts that fuel several days of consistent winds.
But those conditions eventually arrived and our volunteers, champing at the bit to walk beaches, started finding turtles. To date, more than 400 sea turtles have been rescued.
