Sea Turtle Cold Stun Lectures

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 01-11-2012 01-11-2012 15 Sea Turtle Cold Stun Lectures "Cold-stunning” is a process that causes sea turtles to become immobile due to the dramatic decrease in water temperature (usually below 50°F) making it impossible for them to escape the cold water and migrate to warmer water. Once these turtles wash up on our beaches, it is a race for time. A cold-stunned sea turtle may appear to be dead, but may actually be alive! Without proper intervention a cold stunned sea turtle will inevitably die. Please join the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation for a Cold Stunned Sea Turtle Lecture and learn how you can help rescue sea turtles. Last season the Riverhead Foundation recovered 11 cold stunned sea turtles thanks to the public and our volunteer beach patrollers. If you would like to attend a training lecture and learn how to help rescue sea turtles by patrolling your local beach, please register for one of our free lectures. You can register by calling our office at 631.369.9840 or email ksotolotto@riverheadfoundation.org. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=121668 Wertheim National Wildlife refuge true DD/MM/YYYY
