Mote Marine Laboratory Receives Cold-Stunned Turtles from New England

Business

Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium's Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital is currently caring for six juvenile, cold-stunned Kemp's ridley sea turtles. As cold fronts and cooler water temperatures set in in the New England region, rehabilitation facilities become inundated with cold-stun cases that far exceed their capacity. Sea turtles are then transported to other facilities for care, including Mote Marine Laboratory. The six cold-stunned turtles in Mote's care have been nicknamed: Art, Blue Spruce, Fraser, Douglas, Canaan and Noble.
