New York Marine Rescue Center
Cold stunning is a condition similar to hypothermia that is brought on when these cold-blooded sea turtles are in water temperatures below 50°F. Since cold stunning is a condition that slows the movements of afflicted sea turtles, it causes the animals to get washed ashore on New York beaches. This condition left unnoticed, can become fatal. This is why the New York Marine Rescue Center (NYMRC) needs your help! The sooner these animals are found and reported to the RFMRP, the higher their chance of survival!
Attend a lecture and training to become part of our Cold Stun Emergency Response Team and help rescue these endangered animals.
