Update on Phoenix

It is with great regret that I have to let all of you know that our little turtle Phoenix did succumb to his/her cold-stun ailments.

We want to thank you all for your well wishes. This is definitely the hardest part of our job.

Fortunately the majority of the other turtles are doing well. We will give you an update soon.

The Aquarium's Marine Animal Rescue team is rehabilitating dozens of rescued sea turtles brought in by volunteers walking beaches along Cape Cod. These turtles will be treated until they are well enough for release into the wild, then they will be returned to the ocean in warmer waters. See photos of a recent release in this post. Caring for all the turtles is a big job, and any way you can help is appreciated.
