Mississippi Aquarium releases Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtles

Mississippi Aquarium’s veterinary staff just released three endangered Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtles into the Gulf of Mexico.

These turtles were flown down to the aquarium last year after being cold-stunned off the coast of New England.

Since opening in August 2020, the Mississippi Aquarium has released 66 Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtles. The aquarium tells us they are still rehabilitating four more turtles.
