Event description: Learn how you can help rescue sea turtles. "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!
