Lanny, Barbara and Paula Jan.2001 taking a break from our TURTLE RESCUE. We had 461 endangered green sea turtles come ashore in the bay behind Saltworks during a cold spell in Jan. It took us and a lot more guest and volunteers a week to get them in (sometimes one was all we could carry) and to Gulf World to warm up. Then over the next several months they released over 400 back into their world. It was a great education and hard work but worth ever sore muscle!
By the way...if you would like to make a donation (tax deductable) to the Gulf and East Bay Sea Turtle Patrol, Inc. for them to continue their work with turtles and all our wildlife, contact us or Barbara Eells at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We Thank You!
