Pinellas officers save baby sea turtles!

And now for the cutest thing you'll see today: Pinellas County Sheriff's Deputies helped rescue some disoriented baby sea turtles!

The turtles hatched, but rather than making their way to the shoreline, they wandered inland, and onto the property of a St Pete Beach hotel. Sheriff's deputies responded to an early-morning call from a hotel security officer who found over a dozen turtles, and wasn't sure what to do with them. The deputies collected the turtles and returned them to the Gulf! Be sure to see the body cam video below!

Did you know only 1 in 1000 baby sea turtles survive to become adults? It makes me so happy that these little guys have gotten a shot at life :)
