Loggerhead Marinelife Center Joins the Cold Stun Cause

Cold stun sea turtles continue to dominate the conservation news here in Florida. Many zoos, aquariums, and wildlife centers – even Disney’s Animal Kingdom – are assisting with warming up stunned turtles prior to their eventual release.  Many of the smaller centers and nonprofit institutions are keeping up admirably with the enormous demand of their new patients, including the Loggerhead Marinelife Center based in Juno Beach, Florida.  Currently their patient load is twenty-four with over 70 turtles treated so far from the event.

As I mentioned before the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and the Marine Science Center, alongside the LMC, will all need assistance and supplies to continue their efforts on behalf of wildlife in the state of Florida.  If you are local all three centers have posted supply wish lists to their websites, and if you are not local enough to make a drop off donation, please do consider becoming a member of these centers or to donate directly to their rescue funds.  Without the support of the community nonprofits like these simply can’t operate throughout the year.

OnEarth also had a quick view into the turtle situation unfolding here in Florida.  They’re claiming upwards of 5,000 turtles were effected by the event.
