Sea Turtles Cold-Stunned by Texas Freeze Released Back Into Ocean

Dozens of sea turtles that were left cold-stunned by a winter storm in Texas were released back into the ocean on February 22.

The Amos Rehabilitation Keep at the University of Texas Marine Science Institute was among several organizations caring for about 3,000 of the marine creatures after the storm brought record cold temperatures to the Lone Star State.
