“I think we are near 70 cold stunned turtles so far today. Heading back out for another look.”

This Facebook post on the afternoon of Jan. 21 comes from Hatteras Island Wildlife Rehabilitation and its devoted driving force, Lou Browning, (link to our recent story: The birdman of Hatteras).  Nearly a decade after he opened that center, Browning has assisted in retrieving countless cold-stunned sea turtles and has released innumerable birds back into the wild.

Update: As of about 8 p.m., Hatteras Island Wildlife Rehabilitation reported finding more than 84 cold-stunned turtles.

    This is all the commercial fishermen s fault. All those nets are keeping them from leaving. To all of you that have lost your means of making a living because of all the net regulations,, how does this make you feel? Could mother nature be the biggest cause of the turtle demise.
