Mississippi Aquarium releasing 10 Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtles Saturday

The Mississippi Aquarium will be releasing more endangered Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtles.

The release will take place at 5 Saturday on the beach in front of Edgewater Mall in Biloxi. They’ll be releasing ten turtles, all from the batch of 50 cold-stunned turtles sent to the aquarium from New England Aquarium late last year.

The Kemp’s Ridleys being released have all cleared the required medical protocols for release into the Mississippi Sound.
