Sea turtle Inc., the nonprofit marine turtle rescue and rehabilitation center on South Padre Island, released 65 turtles that were previously suffering from cold-snap, a form of turtle hypothermia, at Isla Blanca Park on Nov. 24 and 25. The release process occurred over two days because of the sheer number of turtles rescued by the shore due to the cold front. When they were brought in earlier in the month, 11 were held at the costal studies lab before being picked up to be put into a garage.
