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 this lecture and learn how you can help rescue sea turtles by becoming a volunteer beach patroller.
