SeaWorld rescues Cold-Stressed Turtles

SeaWorld Orlando has just received 20 highly-endangered Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtles that were rescued from the bay and will care for them while they recover from hypothermia, pneumonia, and severe-dehydration.

Here’s a video of the animals arriving for treatment at the airport and then inside SeaWorld’s care facility:

Without the beer brand to fall back on, SeaWorld will have to rely more on its message of conservation to differentiate itself from other Orlando based attractions. They already do the good work, now they just need to get used to talking about it more.
