Man Rescues Desperate Baby Sea Turtle, Covered With Thousands of Barnacles
This poor little turtle was at the mercy of the waves, so covered in barnacles she could no longer swim. Exhausted and getting battered by the tide, fortunately for her, a savior found her just in the nick of time.
There are seven existing species of sea turtles. Six of the seven sea turtle species are present in US waters and are listed as endangered and/or threatened under the Endangered Species Act.
