We’re excited to announce that 3 of the turtles, Muppy, Brewster (pictured above) and A. Ligator, have been medically cleared for release, and will be returning to the Atlantic on Friday, June 26th!
All three turtles were admitted during the busy 2014 cold-stun season. During their seven-month stay in Baltimore, these Kemp’s ridleys were treated for a range of medical ailments including pneumonia, a jaw laceration and shell lesions.
The turtles have received microchips and metal flipper tags to help identify them if they are sighted in the future.
The public is invited to join us on the beach as we say goodbye to our turtle charges! The release will take place in Ocean City, Maryland at 7am, at the inlet parking lot (normal parking rates apply).
