Fri, Nov 18


Mass Audubon Wellfleet Sanctuary

Sea Turtle Rescue Full Weekend

Each year, several thousand young sea turtles get trapped in Cape Cod Bay and cannot find their way out before the weather turns cold. Three species – Loggerhead, Green and Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles – become “stunned”, essentially paralyzed, and wash ashore. We will work to rescue them.
