Yesterday morning, our dispatchers received a report of a sea turtle in distress and stuck in the rocks just south of Marineland. The very large sea turtle was located in the coquina rocks along the sand dunes and unable to get back to the ocean.

Turtle patrol arrived and consulted with authorities, who advised to release the turtle into the water. FCSO Deputy Prather and the Flagler County Fire Rescue assisted in safely dislodging the sea turtle out of the rocks and relocating it into the surf, where it swam off into the sunrise.
