Gulf Turtle Rescue
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation is proud to announce that FedEx Corporation is joining the efforts to protect sea turtle nests and eggs from potential impacts of the oil spill in the northern Gulf of Mexico. FedEx Custom Critical will be donating resources to transport hundreds of nests containing thousands of eggs to Florida’s Atlantic Coast, and its logistics experts are working with the Unified Command and its partner organizations to implement this complex translocation. The relocation efforts began in early-July and are scheduled to continue throughout the hatching season.
