Saving Sea Turtles

A sea turtle egg relocation project has been started in hopes of keeping hatchlings out of the oil that’s spreading through Gulf of Mexico.

Henry Cabbage of the  Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said they have  started digging up sea turtle eggs in nests  in Florida’s Panhandle.

The eggs are being moved to a secure facility in Cape  Canaveral, Florida, where the turtles will be released in the Atlantic Ocean once they’re hatched. Cabbage said the fear with leaving the eggs on the Gulf Coast is “the turtles wil ride the current into the oil.”

The  eggs will be collected three times a week from now until November.
