14 rescued sea turtles released at Canaveral National Seashore

The Florida Aquarium and their Center for Conservation Team released 14 rescued sea turtles at Canaveral National Seashore on the East Coast of Florida Tuesday.  

All of the turtles were rescued in New England during a cold snap in November and four of the turtles were sent to and rehabilitated by The Florida Aquarium team.

The other 10 were rehabilitated by the National Marine Life Center and the New England Aquarium, close to where they stranded.

The 10 rehabilitated turtles were then flown down by NOAA and landed at MacDill Air Force Base on Thursday, January 21.  

All 14 turtles stayed at The Florida Aquarium until Tuesday's release.
