SEA TURTLES HAVE BID GOODBYE TO MANGALURU : ACTIVISTS

SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, Texas – Nine dead sea turtles are now in the hands of federal marine experts. Late last year, more than two dozen turtles washed ashore South Padre Island and Boca Chica Beach.

Of those turtles, nine deaths were under suspicious circumstances. Sea Turtle, Inc. had collected the remains and held on to them after federal officials wanted to find out how they died.

Sea Turtle, Inc. confirmed the turtles were picked up by federal investigators to determine if they were drowned by illegal netting or chemicals.
