WATCH: Brevard Zoo’s Sea Turtle Healing Center Takes in 20 Premature Green Sea Turtle Hatchlings

Brevard Zoo’s Sea Turtle Healing Center has taken in 20 premature green sea turtle hatchlings following Hurricane Dorian. Beach erosion caused by the storm left their Melbourne Beach nest exposed and more vulnerable to predators such as raccoons and foxes. Some of the hatchlings arrived with their yolk sacs still attached.
