Yesterday, Adam, rescue volunteer Kady, and I took a trip to Norwood Memorial Airport to put 6 more Kemp's ridley sea turtles on a plane to the National Aquarium in Baltimore (NAIB). NAIB was kind enough to take these extra turtles (they took 5 turtles a few weeks ago, which you can read about here) and arrange for the Civil Air Patrol to fly them down.
In the above photo on the left, I transfer a turtle from the ambulance to the plane. It was starting to snow so we had to move the turtles fast. On the right, Adam hands a turtle to the pilot John for placement in the plane.
John then secured the 6 turtles in the plane. He seems to be a pro at this now. Thank you John and Mollie from the Civil Air Patrol for all your help!
And off they go...
