Aquarium has new sea turtle patrol truck





CLEARWATER, Fla. — Clearwater Marine Aquarium volunteers now have a new ride to patrol the beaches looking for sea turtles.

Inspired by the movie “The Dolphin Tale,” a Virginia couple donated a new 4-wheel-drive truck.

The aquarium’s CEO says they’ve lost two trucks in the past year due to the salt water conditions creating rust.

The Chaklos family teamed up with Dimmitt Chevrolet to get a 2011 Chevy Silverado.
