Loggerhead Marinelife Center helps to protect sea turtles, and rehabilitates those who are found injured.
On July 12 at 10:30 a.m., the center will release two sub-adult loggerhead sea turtles from its facility. The turtles are named Krebster and Dr. Paul.
Krebster was found near Hutchinson Island with anemia, hypoglycemia and overall poor health due to starvation. Dr. Paul was accidentally hooked by an angler at the Juno Beach Pier. After months of fluids, medications and close monitoring by LMC staff, both have fully recovered and have been approved for release.
Celebrate with LMC by attending the release, where one of LMC’s education docents will convey a history of the sea turtles’ journeys before their release into the ocean.
Surf and wind conditions may affect the scheduling of the turtles’ release. Check marinelife.org and LMC’s social media channels for the latest updates of the release date.
