Smithsonian Earth, a recently launched commercial-free video streaming service, will soon offer a feature about the turtle rescue work undertaken by the South Carolina Aquarium.

"From fishhook-removal surgery to lung X-rays, the dedicated team at the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Care Center does everything in its power to rehabilitate rare and injured sea turtles along the East Coast," the website says.

"Sea Turtle Rescue," available May 23, is among a number of original documentaries and short series about nature and wildlife the streaming option offers. It's available for $3.99 per month with a 30-day free trail at https://smithsonianearthtv.com.
