Background

On December 14, 2010, 5 sea turtles from the Center for Marine Sciences and Technology in North Carolina were transferred to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center. Two loggerheads (Star and Polar) and 3 greens (Frosty, Igloo, and Glacier) were all cold stunned when coastal water temperatures dropped suddenly.
