Loggerhead sea turtle

Caretta caretta


"Sarah", was a loggerhead sea turtle that got release back to the wild, after being treated on the Turtle Hospital in Key West after getting speared in the head by a harpoon. Sarah did a great recovery and was able to go back to wildlife.


Me and my fiance were visiting the Florida Keys, when we were lucky to be able to witness the release of this sea turtle back into the wild. You can read more about this story on my blog at:
