A Team Rescue of Endangered Turtles

A Green Sea Turtle Hatchling
The US Air Force and the Coast Guard teamed up this week in Florida to rescue 29 Endangered green sea turtle hatchlings.
We know that these two groups regularly save lives all over the country, but this was a rescue of an altogether different kind.
These little late bloomers were not quite ready for the now cold Atlantic and probably would not have survived the trip without a little help from their new friends.
The hatchlings were eventually released further out to sea in a warmer area and with a little luck, they should have a better chance for survival.
