The Loggerhead Marinelife Center is preparing to release another sea turtle into the ocean this Wednesday, May 22nd. The sea turtle research and rehabilitation center plan on release Corwin at 10:30 am.

Corwin was found on the beach in Juno Beach in September and is a sub-adult loggerhead sea turtle. Corwin was found struggling in the surf on Juno Beach. After the staff from the center was contacted, Corwin was brought in and was underweight and in poor health. During its stay, the sea turtle received nutrition, iron and antibiotics and was closely monitored by the Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s staff. Earlier this month, Corwin was taken off of all medications and is now ready to be released back into the ocean.
