HAPPY NEW YEAR

Along with the colder weather comes the risk of Sea Turtles getting cold stun. Sea Turtles are cold-blooded reptiles, so they depend on the water temperature to regulate their body temperature.  When the surrounding water temperatures get below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, Sea Turtles are susceptible to getting hypothermia, they become weak and lethargic and unable to swim very well.

If you encounter a Sea Turtle that is on the beach, please make sure not to put them back into the water.  Any Sea Turtle that is found on the beach is in desperate need of help. 


If you are in NMB or Briarcliffe areas and see a stranded Sea Turtle please call the NMB STP HOTLINE at 1-843-213-9074.
