PANAMA CITY, FL (WJHG/NBC) - Dozens of cold-stunned sea turtles are recovering at Gulf World Marine Institute in Panama City, FL after last week's temperature dive.
"They come from any size from a couple pounds to 60 pounds. So we have juvenile to adult range," said Secret Holmes-Douglas of Gulf World Animal Care and Training.
All of the turtles came from the Port St. Joe area of Gulf County.
"The temperatures have dropped in the last week decreasing the water temperature in St. Joe Bay and caused the turtles to cold stun," said Holmes-Douglas.
Staff and volunteers immediately began assessing the extent of their injuries.
When water temperatures drop below 60 degrees, the turtles go into shock and stop moving.
