Stranding 47th Ave N-Cherry Grove

A little rare Kemps Ridley Sea Turtle was pulled from the surf early this morning.  NMB Sanitation was alerted and they quickly informed STP Volunteers Joe and Nancy who had just started their Wednesday walk.

Sadly, the turtle had died....No apparent injuries other than two shallow puncture wounds on it's carapace.

This little guy's carapace measure around 13 inches

A big thanks to NMB Sanitation for reporting this turtle.  And a huge thanks to NMB STP Volunteers for calling it in and then helping to process the turtle.  And a thank you to the unknown walker who pulled it out of the surf.
