Gulf World releases eight rehabilitated sea turtles

ST. GEORGE ISLAND, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Wednesday morning, Gulf World Marine Institute released eight rehabilitated sea turtles into the Gulf of Mexico off St. George Island.

The turtles were sent to Gulf World in November as part of a larger group of 50 from a New England aquarium.

They were suffering from cold stunning.

The eight Kemps Ridley sea turtles have made a full recovery since then, and were cleared for release.
