The National Aquarium has rehabilitated and returned 15 young sea turtles to their natural habitat off the coast of Florida. The turtles have been at the aquarium since November after they were found cold-stunned off the coast of Massachusetts, according to aquarium staff. During their stay, the juvenile turtles were treated for various ailments that are commonly associated with cold-stunning, such as pneumonia, dehydration, emaciation, shell lesions, skin lesions, eye lesions, and blood infections, staff said.
