Three Green sea turtle hatchlings head out to sea after being released from a U.S. Coast Guard search and rescue boat near a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration weather buoy 20 miles off the shore of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., Jan. 6, 2012. The 29 live hatchlings needed to get into the water to feed, but since they were so late in emerging, the water temperature near the shore was too cold for them. (Photo by Julie Dayringer)
