Sea Turtle Rescue with Photographer Bob Michelson
Monday, December 4, 2023
From early November through the end of December, young sea turtles are stranded along north facing beaches of Cape Cod. These "cold stunned” turtles are near death and suffer from pneumonia, as well as injuries to their bodies, or both.
Photographer Bob Michelson was contracted by NOAA National Marine Fisheries service to document the entire process, from rescuing sea turtles along Cape Cod beaches through their medical care and rehabilitation at the New England Aquarium sea turtle facility in Quincy, to their release back into the environment. Exclusive underwater photos of turtles in the New England Aquarium Giant Ocean Tank are included in this presentation.
