Film Friday: Sea Turtle Release Day!

Scientists at The UNC Institute of Marine Sciences, the UNCW Center for Marine Science, the North Carolina Wildlife Commission, NC State CMAST, the National Parks Service, and the North Carolina Aquariums have been collaborating for quite a while to coordinate a sea turtle release. The day finally came last week, as members of the Peterson lab at IMS, along with many collaborators got out on the water to release these rehabbed turtles. Mary Lide Parker from UNCResearch shot video with a GoPro. Here is a quick look at what they did (I hear a full length video is coming soon, so stay tuned!).
