15 sea turtles were released in the Gulf Stream waters outside the Florida Keys on Saturday after weeks of rehabilitation! The turtles were found in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, buried in seaweed.

All the turtles were found off the coast of the Florida Keys on September 29. One of the turtles, named "Ian" after the hurricane, was taken to the Turtle Hospital in Marathon, where it was treated with fluids and diet and nursed back to health.

The turtles were released into a sargassum weed line about 20 miles off Key West in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Sargassum acts as camouflage for young turtles, making it an ideal habitat for their stage of life

Glad we're protecting these guys! If you didn't know already, Sea Turtles are an endangered species, so anything we can do to help save them is amazing!
