More than two dozen rare sea turtles who were cold, hungry and lost were rescued over the US Thanksgiving holiday after having washed ashore on Cape Cod, a spokesman for the New England Aquarium said. The Kemp's ridley species of turtles are being treated at an animal care centre south of Boston for hypothermia, dehydration, and malnourishment, aquarium spokesman Tony LaCasse said.
