Three Sea Turtles To Be Released at Isle Of Palms

Published

on

seaturtleThe South Carolina Aquarium will be releasing 3 rehabilitated sea turtles back into the ocean at the Isle of Palms County Park on Thursday, May 23rd at 4 pm. The event is FREE (you may have to pay to park) and open to the public.

This is the first sea turtle release of the year. I’ve attended a couple of these events in the past and they are always fun and unique. I highly recommend you bring your camera and head to the beach!

Here’s a little about each turtle:

  • BIRDIE
    • A juvenile Kemp’s ridley (above) from South Carolina
    • Found entangled in monofilament fishing line
  • MANTEO
    • Loggerhead
    • Cold-stunned off the North Carolina coast this past winter
  • TAYLOR
    • Loggerhead
    • Cold-stunned off the New England coast this past winter
