Volunteers to the Rescue

Roughly 2,400 turtles were deemed healthy and were immediately released. Approximately 1,000 live turtles were not so fortunate and required intensive medical care. Crisis organization and management of volunteers were jointly managed by Turtle Conservancy and Turtle Survival Alliance.
