People help cold sea turtles - level 1
In North Carolina, USA, it gets cold. The sea even gets cold. This is a problem for turtles. They get cold-stunned.
People find the turtles. They help them. They take them to a rehabilitation facility.
When the turtles are better, people move them on a boat. They take them to warmer waters. People let the turtles go back to the sea.
Turtles cannot control their body temperatures. They are reptiles. Reptiles are animals like snakes. Snakes cannot control their body temperatures either.
Difficult words: cold-stunned (so cold that it is dangerous), rehabilitation facility (a place where you can get better), either (also).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
