Sea Turtle Rescue Locals Full Weekend

Already on Cape Cod? Then you know 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.
