Cold Stunning in Texas

Unusually cold winter weather has resulted in another cold stunning event along the Texas coast. Over 1,000 cold-stunned sea turtles have been rescued since the beginning of February. This marks the second year for a major cold-stunning event in the state. Just last year, when cold-stunned sea turtles were also being rescued in Florida, over 400 were rescued in Texas.

More information on the Texas cold-stunning and the rescue efforts can be found here. Photos from the event can be found here and here.
