A poster for interested public to illustrate the cycle of a cold-stunned sea turtle. It is important for the public to know the signs of a cold-stunned sea turtle because they are often mistaken for dead when found on the beach. These sea turtles are suffering from hypothermia so their heart rate has decreased and they have become lethargic. Because of this they often have lesions from being struck by boats and are covered with algae, seaweed, and barnacles. It is important that they are taken to a professional who can stabilize them and release them back into the wild.
