Event description: "Cold-stunning” is a process that causes sea turtles to become immobile due to the dramatic decrease in water temperature making it impossible for them to escape the cold water and migrate to warmer water. 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. 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. Register by calling 631-369-9840 or email
