Loggerhead Rescued on Naples Beach

A Loggerhead turtle was found stranded on the beach at Naples on April 16, was taken to Mote’s Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital at Sarasota, and is doing well.

It was determined that the turtle had been tagged by Mote staff several times previously and had records dating back over 20 years. This, approximately 225 lb turtle has a lot of interesting history.

I am impressed. A 21 year history on this turtle is really something!
