While you were snuggly in your bed, the Sea Turtle Trek team was cruising down the East Coast. They met up with folks from the Virginia Aquarium last night. Here are a couple pictures from the hand-off—even more turtles joined the trek!

An all-important hand-off. This turtle is now bound for release in Florida!

Precious cargo!
