    If a baby turtle got confused in finding its way to the ocean, would it be OK to pick it up and carry it down to the water's edge? Sorry...I don't mean to be offensive. I appreciate your work. :-)

    My lady binder is killing me.

      The thing is that most people can't tell the difference between a new disoriented hatchling and a "post hatchling" that is a few weeks old and has been out to the weedline and then gotten blown back in. Those have to be handled differently as their energetics are different. Best thing is to use your cell phone and call the local stranding team. If you don't know the number, ask a lifeguard or park personnel or call the local police nonemergency number and they will know it.
