Corpus Christi, Texas — More shellfish returned to the water on North Padre Island early Sunday morning.
This was a special release as there were 3 green turtles and 4 loggerhead turtles. It is rare that there are many loggerhead turtles in rehabilitation.
“We are really investigating why these turtles are stranded,” said Veterinarian and Director. Texas Sea Life Center Tim Tristan said. “We work with NOAA staff and other veterinarians to figure out what’s going on. This is a collaboration.”
Hundreds of beach fans cheered them on for free, so those very big guys were ready to go home.
