(by Caleb S-Star) In Troop 205, Long Beach, MS, we recently helped the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies (IMMS) release Kemp’s Ridley turtles. These endangered turtles were either caught by fishermen or were washed up on shore. Through their hard work and dedication, IMMS rehabilitated them and sent them back to the wild, and we are grateful for them letting us have this experience. We helped on the beach: Spraying the turtles with water so they don’t dehydrate and putting up boundaries so people couldn’t touch the turtles. We walked in the water as far as we could to release the turtles. And after, the local news interviewed two of the Boy Scouts. Overall, it was a great time!
