Gulf Turtle Rescue - the best laid plans DO work

An article in NatureNews by Melissa Gaskill, "Turtle rescue plan succeeds", details the success story of transplanting over 25,0000 sea turtle eggs from the Gulf of Mexico to Kennedy Space Center on Florida's east coast. Contributors to the project included US Fish & Wildlife, Sea Turtle Conservancy, and a small army of volunteers. The project serves as a model for future man-made and natural disaster responses and clearly demonstrates that when agencies, organizations, and communities work together, anything can be accomplished.
