Today 51 sea turtles were released at Galveston. They were brought to Texas last December after suffering from the cold in Cape Cod, New England. Most of the turtles were endangered Kemp's Ridley sea turtles.

5 of the world's 7 sea turtle species are found in the Gulf of Mexico. Here's more: http://bit.ly/SeaTurtlesGulf

The rescue and release were coordinated by NOAA Fisheries Service Boston Aquarium, Houston Zoo and Moody Gardens

Curious how rain has impacted your local lake? Check lake levels at  http://www.waterdatafortexas.org/reservoirs/statewide
Water supply reservoirs include reservoirs which provide water for all beneficial purposes such as power generation, recreation, and municipal water supply. Today's total is subject to change as data are updated. See footnotes on individual lakes for cases where special conditions apply.

Monday evening the dam at Bastrop State Park failed. The lake has mostly emptied. No injuries have been reported. The park is closed but nearby Buescher State Park remains open.

What a shame. It will take decades for the environment and animals to get back to normal. Wasn't even healed from the fires yet and now this.

The man had had not possessed a valid Texas driver’s license since 1992, had no vehicle insurance, had 2 felony arrest warrants and stolen license plates. But he didn't want to break one particular law. Read about this case and more in the latest field notes from Texas Game Wardens at http://bit.ly/GameWardenFieldNotes615
