At the aquarium in Baltimore, sea turtles are being treated for a variety of conditions from respiratory infections to injured flippers.
Usually the weather is too cold or storm waters overrun the nests, but Maryland's first-ever confirmed sea turtle has hatched and is now thriving.
In the wake of shark-killing fury spurred on by the 1975 movie "Jaws," the aquarium serves as a respository for information about a misunderstood beast that is critical to the entire marine ecosystem.
