Sea Turtles Released Back Into the Ocean

JUNE 8, 2005 --Somewhere out in the atlantic, thirteen sea turtles are getting used to a new life.

The turtles were rescued by volunteers at the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Topsail Island. All the turtles were nursed back to health, and released back into the ocean.

Volunteers and topsail residents came to say their goodbyes to the turtles. Hospital Director Jean Beasley says she's sad to see them go, but knows they are going to be in a better place.
