Preparing for a turtle release

Tomorrow morning at 11, the National Aquarium’s Marine Animal Rescue Program will be releasing three rare Kemp’s ridley sea turtles from Point Lookout State Park. These turtles have been in rehab since December, after stranding due to cold-stunning. You can read more about them here, and also track one of them, named Marshall, via satellite tracking, as they return to the sea.

You can also watch a video of these turtles being rehabilitated:
