Thanks to the Juno Beach Loggerhead Marinelife Center, another loggerhead sea turtle has returned home into the ocean. Loggerhead Marinelife Center (LMC) is one of Florida’s most unique non-profit cultural destinations focused on ocean and sea turtle conservation.

The juvenile sea turtle that was stranded at Coral Cove Park in Tequesta back in November.  The Marinelife center named the turtle Cici.  The sea turtle was successfully released this week, on the beach behind the Juno Beach facility. More than 800 people came out to witness the joyous occurrence. 

When Cici was rescued three months ago, she was taken to Jupiter Medical Center, where a CT scan showed she had a condition called pneumocoelom. Pneumocoelom is a condition in which gas pockets had built up inside her body. Researchers believe likely after a ruptured lung. With this condition, turtles can become too buoyant, floating on the surface of the ocean but unable to dive down and find food. Ultimately, marine biologists were able to withdraw six liters of air from the sea turtle, and Cici was nursed back to health.
