Turtles Cold-Stunned by Texas Winter Storm Released Back Into Ocean

Dozens of sea turtles that were left cold-stunned by a winter storm in Texas were released back into the ocean on February 22.

Texas Sealife Center was caring for almost a thousand of the marine creatures after the storm brought record cold temperatures to the Lone Star State. Several record lows were broken in Corpus Christi over the week-long storm, where the Texas Sealife Center is based.

Around 200 turtles were released on February 22, Jamie McWilliams from the Sealife Center told Storyful.
