Latest White House Press Pool report – turtles?

Subject: Print pool #4



The following comes from a WH official:


The First Family released four green sea turtles today in Hanauma Bay.


The turtles are all 18 months old and were all born on June 26th 2010 at

Sea Life Park.


Unique fact: Sea Life Park is the only place that raises green sea turtles

in captivity in the US.


All four of the turtles were identified with distinctive markings and have

microchips in their rear flippers with a unique ID so they can scan them if

them come up on the beach and ID that turtle.


Per Jeff Pawloski, Curator of Sea Life
