The National Aquarium hosts the public release of sea turtles


BALTIMORE COUNTY, Maryland — Editor’s Note: This video is from October 2017 of a sea turtle hatching in Assateague State Park in Maryland.

The aquarium, which rehabilitates sick and injured sea turtles, organized the release to the park located in Berlin, Maryland, to return them to their natural habitat.

The spectators, including US Senator Chris Van Hollen, gathered to see the release of Violoncelle and Basson, two very sp-shell turtles and the main attractions of the event, around 10 a.m. at the Youth Court and outside the supervised areas of the park.

“National Aquarium of Maryland rescues and rehabilitates endangered sea turtles, like cello and bassoon here, so they can make a full recovery and be returned to the wild,” said Senator Hollen in a tweet. “It’s great to be at Assateague State Park this morning releasing these buddies into the sea.”

Public broadcasts have been suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The one in the aquarium Animal rescue program helps sick and injured sea turtles and marine mammals along Maryland’s 3,190 miles of coastline.
