AZVT Contributes To Historic Sea Turtle Rescue Effort

Zoos and wildlife rehabilitation facilities are scrambling to triage, treat, and recover thousands of sea turtles in Texas and the US South in what is being called "one of the largest cold stun events in history".

AZVT has sent $5,000 to aid in these collaborative relief efforts. This money will be used by professionals on scene for needed items such as animal food and housing, medical supplies, and transportation of sea turtles.
At this time, AZVT is not aware of any requests for volunteer or on-scene professional assistance. AZVT encourages individuals wishing to provide assistance to make a monetary donation to AZA's SAFE Program, specify "SAFE-Sea Turtle" in your donation.
