Turtles Stunned by Freezing Weather

Day 130 of My Italian Learning Journal*

The weather has been unusually cold in and around Corpus Christi, Texas, where I live. Our area is known as the Coastal Bend of Texas. The cold and freezing weather has affected sea life, and hundreds of green sea turtles have washed ashore, stunned by the cold. Our sea shores are turtle nesting areas as well. The turtles have been rescued by volunteers and staff of the Padre Island National Seashore Division of Sea Turtle Science and Recovery as well as Sea World. Below I have embedded the Monterey Bay Aquarium  Sea Cam, California USA -- if you are lucky you will see sea animals swimming across the camera lens. Click the Play button.

Ascolta Questo:
  • L'insolito clima gelido della nostra zona ha sconvolto centinaia di tartarughe verdi.

  • Centinaia di tartarughe verdi sono state salvate, con l'aiuto di molti volontari.

  • Alcune tartarughe verdi vivono fino a 80 anni.
    Some green sea turtles live to 80 years.
  • Le nostre spiagge sono aree di nidificazione per la tartaruga verde, e ci ritornano ogni anno.
    Our seashores are nesting areas for the green sea turtle and return every year.
