Crackle stranded on November 23, 2013 at Thumpertown Beach in South Eastham, Cape Cod, MA. Crackle was cold stunned and dehydrated. Mass Audubon Society turtle beach patrol volunteers secured Crackle from the beach and transported him to the New England Aquarium rehabilitation facility in Quincy. After over eight months of rehabilitation and almost tripling its weight, Crackle was released back to the wild!
