Some happy sea turtles are going home!

Over the entire state there have been about twenty five hundred turtles collected and they are still coming in. There has been a huge effort by many, and it has taken some great organizational skills to accomodate so many sea turtles. Now the labor of love continues, as turtles recover and can be released.

Watch as hundreds of turtles are released back into the sea.
Sea World Orlando is the state recommended place for the homecoming and staging area for the release. It's warm enough and about as far south as they want to release them.

In Panama City, the Navy was called in to assist.

Shallow water in the Keys is warming up. Some turtles are ready for release in that area.
