Donations Needed for Cold Stunned Sea Turtle Rescue Efforts

Over 349 cold stunned sea turtles have been brought in over the past few days. The Aquarium is in need of immediate cash donations to assist with the purchase of medical supplies to assist cold stunned sea turtles who are being cared for at the NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island​ S.T.A.R. Center by staff and N.E.S.T. (Network for Endangered Sea Turtles)​ volunteers.

Currently 85 turtles were cleared to return to the wild and are being transported south to Florida last.  Thanks to all the volunteers and staff working hard to help these turtles.  Check out this video by Elizabeth Browning Fox to learn more.
