Feds:Kennedys’seaturtle rescue was a violation
BARNSTABLE, Mass. — Two mem-bers of the Kennedy family whothought they were doing a good deedby freeing an entangled sea turtle actu-ally violated the law, according to theNational Oceanic and AtmosphericAdministration.John Bullard of NOAA’s Division of Fisheries said he spoke to brothersMax and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. abouttheir rescue of the leatherback turtleand explained to them that what theydid was dangerous and a violation of the Endangered Species Act, whichmakes it illegal to handle an endan-gered or protected species.The Kennedys freed the estimated500-pound turtle from a buoy linewrapped around its head and ﬁns onJuly 6 after they spotted it while outsailing on Nantucket Sound.The brothers have been “coopera-tive and very helpful” as the agencygathers pictures, gear and other evi-dence involved in the rescue, Bullardtold Cape Cod Times.Turtle rescue is best left to profes-sionals because of the dangerinvolved, he said. Anyone who spots adistressed turtle should contact NOAA.An untrained person runs the risk of getting tangled in the line and pulledunder by a turtle, which can weigh upto 700 pounds and hold its breath a lotlonger than a human, he said.“You can get entangled, go under andit can turn into a tragedy,” he said.Only the Provincetown Center forCoastal Studies is certiﬁed to handleturtles.The brothers have expressed regret.“When we spotted a sea turtle introuble over the 4th of July weekend,our ﬁrst impulse was to do what wecould to help free the animal,” RobertKennedy Jr. said in a statement onNOAA’s website. “But we realize thatthe action we took was pretty risky,these are large, powerful animals.”He urged people who spot a turtle indanger to call NOAA, then stand byuntil rescuers arrive to help themlocate the animal.There have been 22 reported turtleentanglements in Massachusetts,Rhode Island and New York waters thisyear, NOAAsaid, compared to eightduring the same period last year.
