Drew, our 135-pound Loggerhead Sea Turtle, made her way back into the wild at 10am this morning at Clearwater Beach! Drew was found floating in shallow water just off Honeymoon Island on June 30, 2012. She was emaciated and had trouble diving. She weighed 105 pounds when she was admitted and has since overcome her buoyancy problem.
Our Sea Turtle team has had a very busy year. The team located a record-breaking 200 nests on 26 miles of patrolled Pinellas County beaches. We have also rehabilitated and released 5 turtles since January. We are so excited and proud of our entire team and could not be more thankful for all the continued support! Thank you all very much!
