Cold Stun Turtle Talk

SHARE

Cold stunning is a condition like hypothermia that is brought on when cold-blooded sea turtles are in water temperatures below 50F. Since cold stunning is a condition that slows movements of afflicted sea turtles, which causes the animals to wash ashore on New York beaches. Left unnoticed, this condition can become fatal. The New York Marine Rescue Center (NYMRC) needs your help! The sooner these turtles are found and reported to the NYMRC, the higher their chance of survival. Participants of this presentation will be invited to attend a training session to become a part of our volunteer sea turtle monitoring program for the upcoming cold stun season.
