Florida is home to a lot of sea life. Some of that life, like sea turtles, like to get their flippers dried out on land from time to time. Since we humans happen to live on land, it’s relatively common to have a run-in here and there. But one recent run-in meant an enormous sea turtle needed a little helping hand.
“A resident in Melbourne Beach, Florida found an adult sea turtle on his beachfront property this morning,” wrote the Sea Turtle Preservation Society. “He called Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation which then called our STPS hotline for action.”
