Cape Cod seeing "white shark abundance"

Cape Cod is experiencing a "white shark abundance," according to a new report from the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, UMass Dartmouth and the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries. It's the first time that's happened in the North Atlantic. The study also says more than 300 different types of sharks have been tracked across the area. Dr. Greg Skomal, senior fisheries biologist at the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries, joins "CBS News Mornings" to discuss the findings.


Rescuing sea turtles

Because of changing ocean temperatures, hundreds of sea turtles have been washing up almost dead onto New England beaches. And while local aquariums have been successful at nursing the majority of them back to health, they don't have room to care for all of them.

Correspondent Lee Cowan reports on how these creatures, including the endangered Kemp's Ridley turtles, are being given a second chance.
