The Aransas group was the last class of 2018 for Training on Cold Stunned Sea Turtles in Texas. We had 32 attendees  back on 11/26/2018, who all enjoyed learning what all is involved in rescuing a Turtle . Learning how to identify them, handle and Tag them correctly. What difficult weather conditions we can expect on those days and how to dress accordingly and protected gear that is needed to stay safe etc.
