Nine Kemp's ridley sea turtles were being treated for injuries related to fishing lines and hooks, at the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies in Gulfport, Miss. Now due to the gulf oil spill, there was need to make room to treat turtles that have been exposed to the oil.
The sea turtles and a A marine biologist, left Gulfport in style Friday, on a private jet, donated by a New Orleans law firm. Finally a little luck for sea turtles.
They arrived in fine shape in Orlando, and were taken to Sea World, where each will have a tank of their own, until they are ready to be released.
Finally, a pleasant story. :)
