Remember that turtle we rescued? It was last December and a cold front had stranded hundreds of sea turtles along Cape Cod. The New England Aquarium was quickly overwhelmed. So the Sea Turtle Stranding and Disentanglement Coordinator for NOAA Fisheries reached out for help to get one of the turtles – a 31-pound Juvenile Loggerhead Sea Turtle known as 20-910-Cc – from Boston to Sea Turtle Recovery in New Jersey. Michael and Daniel dug the plane out of the snow (literally!) and completed the mission. Sea Turtle Recovery reported the next day that 20-910-Cc was on antibiotics but doing well.
That’s the last we’d heard until we got this letter in the mail from NOAA thanking Pilots To The Rescue for our help. Turns out our buddy recovered and has now been released back into the wild!
