The turtles were found stranded on Cape Cod beaches last November and December due to severe hypothermia after failing to migrate south. The turtles were taken to the Aquarium’s sea turtle hospital in Quincy, MA, where they were treated and rehabilitated for several months.
Biologists determined the turtles were ready to be released but there was one problem: the ocean temperatures off the coast of Massachusetts are still too cold.
Sea turtles prefer water temperatures in the 70s, so Aquarium staff and volunteers took a road trip to Florida to release the turtles back into the ocean.
