Zoo Fosters Over 1,500 Baby Sea Turtles Displaced By Hurricane Irma

In the wake of Hurricane Irma, staff and volunteers at the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, Florida are caring for over 1,500 displaced hatchling and washback green and loggerhead sea turtles. When the turtles arrived at the zoo’s Sea Turtle Healing Center, each hatchling and washback was documented. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission then transported the turtles to safe waters.
