Such wonderful work by MyFWC!

Saving cold-stunned turtles
Our staff and partners released hundreds of recovered sea turtles back into the Gulf today. During the cold snaps this month, we rescued about 900 cold-stunned sea turtles across the state with the help of our partners, including Gulf World Marine Institute. These turtles have been processed and evaluated, and are now healthy and ready to go back to Florida waters!

Thanks to Gulf Specimen Marine Lab for today’s near-simultaneous release on St. George Island!
