Volunteers Save Thousands of Sea Turtles from Winter Storm in Texas

Sea Turtle Inc called for help to rescue the sea turtles. People all over south Texas started showing up, offering to do whatever they could to save the helpless creatures.

Last Monday, the nonprofit reached capacity due to the influx of turtles, sending overflow to the island’s convention center. By the next day, over 1,700 turtles had been rescued.Volunteers placed them in rows on tarps and filled kiddie pools with water to warm them up.

Out in the Gulf, Texas game wardens used their patrol boats to rescue hundreds of turtles. Because of the frigid temperatures, the sea turtles lost the function of their flippers.
