To benefit New York Marine Rescue Center


* Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtle (Lepidochelys kempii), also known as the Atlantic Ridley sea turtle, is the rarest species of sea turtle and is critically endangered. It is just one of many species that the New York Marine Center endeavors to rescue, rehabilitate and release every year as cold-stunned turtles arrive helpless on our beaches in the fall and winter and often die without discovery and response.
