SeaWorld® aquarist Dan Conklin prepares to transport a de-oiled Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle from Panama City Beach, Fla. to SeaWorld in Orlando today. The endangered reptile was one of 19 green and Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles transferred to SeaWorld’s rescue and rehabilitation facility after being cleaned of oil at the Gulf World Marine Park. The animals will rehabilitate at SeaWorld, with the goal to eventually release them back into the wild.
