Cold Stun



On February 14, 2021, a winter storm hit Texas. Met with freezing temperatures combined with a disabled power grid, a small organization fought to save the lives of thousands of cold stunned sea turtles that would have otherwise frozen to death and drowned. With the help of a community of volunteers, Sea Turtle, Inc. sheltered around 5500 sea turtles during the largest cold stun event in recorded US history.
