Last week, the frigid Texas weather, threatened not only the residents of South Padre but the sea turtles as well. Thousands of sea turtles were rescued by volunteers and Sea Turtle Inc., the South Padre Island Rehab center, who helped them warm and recuperate from cold shock. Thanks to the center, in partnership with other sea-life centers, over 2,000 of the sea turtles rescued have been released back into the Gulf of Mexico in what was a 24 hour process. Though the center is still working to rehabilitate and release the rest of the turtles, they are very optimistic each one will be back in the water very soon.
