Thanks to members of our stranding team for their fast action in rescuing a Kemp's Ridley turtle that was caught in fishing line off the Holden Beach Pier. Also thanks to the fishermen who alerted the team and Stephen Venker for these photos. Other photos can be seen on the Town of Holden Beach FACEBOOK page and under Photos on this website--look for Kemp Ridley Rescue 2014. Remember that if you see a turtle on the beach or stranded in the water please give our stranding team a call at 910-754-0766 Good news, we are now in the 21st century and have traded in our pagers for a cell phone. Please only use this number for TURTLE EMERGENCIES.
