"Eleven weeks ago we rescued 27 snapping turtle eggs after finding the mother dead on the side of a road. Today 8 hatchling snappers were released in the same river watershed area from which their mother emerged and 7 more will be released over the next few days. They were released within a half-mile of where the mother was found, in a private, protected area."
