Nine sea turtles to be released in Florida on Thursday

9 rescued sea turtles released

SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Nine sea turtles will be released back into the ocean off the coast of Panama City Beach tomorrow.

The sea turtles were rescued off the coast of New England during cold snaps. More than 50 sea turtles were flown to Florida earlier this year as a part of this rescue mission.

Gulf World has been looking after them since then.
