SeaWorld Orlando Releases 14 Sea Turtles at Canaveral National Seashore on April 10, 2013

20130410_Sea Turtle Release_11As part of their ongoing conservation efforts, yesterday (April 10), SeaWorld Orlando returned 14 sea turtles to Canaveral National Seashore in Titusville, FL.

The 11 Kemps Ridley and three loggerheads have been with the park since December 23, 2012, after being rescued off the coast of Cape Cod, MA. They were suffering symptoms due to cold stress.

After being medically cleared for today’s return, the park’s Animal Rescue Team transported the 14 turtles to Canaveral National Seashore, where they were released back into the Atlantic Ocean.

In collaboration with the government and other members of accredited stranding networks, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment operates one of the world’s most respected programs to rescue ill and injured marine animals, with the goal to rehabilitate and return to the waters.

If you see injured sea turtles, you can help by calling the FWC hotline at 1(888) 404-3922 or by dialing *FWC on a cellular device.
