The Mass Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is reporting its third-busiest turtle stranding season. At nearly 400 turtles rescued, they made the following report:
Looks like we'll be having our third busiest cold-stun stranding season ever-- we're right around the 400-sea turtle mark. Fourteen loggerheads have come in, most of them alive! Thanks to one of our dedicated drivers, Curt Smith, for giving this big turtle a ride (along with a little ridley) to the New England Aquarium.
