Sea Turtle Release

Posted on 23 July 2014


The Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation has invited the public to join it at 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 27, in Hampton Bays for the first sea turtle release of the season.

Estonia, a Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle, was rescued last October from Davis Park, Fire Island. This endangered juvenile was cold stunned and has spent the last nine months being rehabilitated at the foundation’s center in Riverhead.

The meeting place will be in the parking lot at Ponquogue Beach, which is on Dune Road, just east of the Ponquogue Bridge. The town will waive the parking fee beginning 15 minutes before the scheduled release time.
