More Turtles Return to the Sea
The National Aquarium saw the potential for publicity. Ocean City, Maryland is filled with vacationing city folk during the summer and the end of July may be the peak. So that's when they scheduled the release of three Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtles who were rescued after an unusually cold winter eight months earlier. They called the press; they called the politicians; and most of all they called the beach goers who came and cheered the turtles as they returned to the sea. A good time was had by all.
