The University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine recently helped save more than 70 sea turtles during the recent freezing weather conditions. Nearly all of the turtles have been released back into the ocean. While they were kept at the Vet School, students and Vets were participating with a wide variety of rescue centers who provided care until the weather warmed up. Kaitlyn Ash observed the effort and filed this report.[audio:http://www.wuft.org/media/audio/TURTLE.mp3]
