Environmental specialist Jackie Shum of Port Orange holds one of the turtles as it's being examined at the Marine Science Center in Ponce Inlet, Friday, Dec. 7. A total of five cold-stunned loggerhead sea turtles were flown to Florida by a Coast Guard plane and transported to the Marine Science Center (MSC) in Ponce Inlet. The sea turtles are part of a cold-stunned influx hitting the New England Aquarium in Boston, Mass. The aquarium, which has rescued more than 150 sea turtles, turned to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Florida Wildlife Commission (FWC) for help. The MSC is part of a "stranding network" of facilities that accept and rehabilitate stranded sea turtles and seabirds. For more information, visit marinesciencecenter.com.
