Thousands of turtles have been saved from freezing waters in the United States following the recent storms around Texas.

In total, more than 2,600 turtles were rescued around South Padre Island at the southern tip of Texas. All up around 7000 turtles were rescued.

Volunteers and wildlife officials spent hours searching bays and beaches for stranded turtles that were suffering from “cold-stun.”

Cold Stun is a condition which stops turtles’ mobility and often results in stranding. The turtles then become lethargic and often float to the surface or wash up onshore.

Sea Turtle, Inc. is a nonprofit organisation that rescues sea turtles. They will look after the turtles until they are well and the sea warm up.
