Where Have All The Turtles Gone?

Yesterday I mentioned that 4 of our sea turtles were satellite tagged for the release. See the map below, created by our GIS expert Brooke Wikgren, to see where they have gone already.

It should be interesting to see if they follow the same path as Goose, a green sea turtle released last year. You can visit seaturtle.org to track and adopt these turtles.

I would also like to thank all our volunteers, interns, and staff from our rescue team, Mass Audubon and UNE who have helped this sea turtle season. Without you, we would not be able to successfully release these animals. Enjoy the pictures below of volunteers and staff from all organizations at the release!

The above picture on the left is NEAQ veterinarian Dr. Cavin at the center with Dennis from Mass Audubon next to her. The picture on the right shows UNE volunteers and staff preparing to release the turtles.

The picture on the left shows Erin (on left), a rescue staff member, and Randi, one of our dedicated volunteers. The picture in the center is Katie, the veterinary technician for NEAq, ready to release Tuzigoot. On the right is Adam announcing instructions to the turtle handlers.

The picture on the left is of the Rescue Team's "Tuesday Crew," (left to right: volunteers Alison, John, Emily, and staff Ulrika). The picture on the right shows UNE staff members Shannon and Asheley celebrating after the release.

Thank you again to everyone for their support and hard work!
