Turtles Captured


A photo provided by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey shows captured turtles at New York's Kennedy airport Wednesday, June 29, 2011. About 150 turtles crawled onto the tarmac at New York's Kennedy airport Wednesday in search of beaches to lay their eggs, delaying dozens of flights, aviation authorities said. The migration of diamondback terrapin turtles happens every year at Kennedy, which is built on the edge of Jamaica Bay and a federally protected park.
