The Turtle Stranding "Season" Has Begun

Stranded TurtleAs the cold weather sets in, the sea turtles that didn't head south early enough to escape the cold often come ashore on the Bay beaches of Eastham & Wellfleet where they, hopefully, are rescued. This past weekend over 20 turtles were found on local beaches. The turtles include the rare Kemp Ridley and loggerhead species. The Kemp Ridley is listed as an endangered species. Check out the story in the Cape Cod Times.... Here.
