TEXAS – Cold stunned sea turtles have been washing ashore these past few weeks in Port Aransas, Texas.

It’s all a result of the last couple cold fronts that have moved through the coastal bend.

Dozens of green sea turtles, have been spotted and are now recovering at the A.R.K. Rehabilitation Center at the Marine Science Institute.

45 sea turtles were rescued after they were found frozen along parts of Laguna Madre. Tony Amos with A.R.K. says the culprit was this past weekend’s cold weather that rolled in.
