“Kempocalypse” T-Shirt Honors an Extraordinary Year!

Kempocalypse T-Shirt available at NMLC!1,234 sea turtles. Mostly Kemp’s ridleys. People from all over Massachusetts and the country stepping up to help.

The 2014-2015 Cape Cod sea turtle stranding season has been unprecedented. Three times the previous maximum number of sea turtles stranded. Most of the turtles have been Kemp’s ridleys, along with a number of loggerheads, greens, and hybrids.

It’s been a privilege to work along side partners in the Sea Turtle Stranding and Salvage Network. Mass Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary led the Herculean effort to rescue and recover all turtles from the beaches. The New England Aquarium triaged all turtles. NOAA Fisheries worked with the Aquarium to place turtles into long-term rehabilitation. Sea turtle rehabilitation facilities between Massachusetts and Texas are full of turtles from Cape Cod.

The National Marine Life Center admitted 32 of the sea turtles – three times the number we’ve ever had on site before. Caring for this number of animals has been an extraordinary effort. But when you’re helping an endangered species – it’s well worth it.

To honor this extraordinary year, and to raise money to complete the rehabilitation and release of the 27 turtles remaining at NMLC, we are offering this unique commemorative t-shirt with art work designed by Lori Hunt & The Georgia Sea Turtle Center. Order yours today!
