Pictures from the release

The Rescue Team just released 17 healthy turtles from the 2011 stranding season. Learn more about this event here. In this post, Adam piques our interest with some fantastic pictures of this bittersweet occasion.

Sue Barco and Maggie Lynott from the Virginia Aquarium get ready to place two of the Kemp's ridley sea turtles on the beach.

Away they go...

As we sort through photos and recoup from a crazy trip we will get you the whole story.
Maybe tomorrow? Stay tuned...
