Good Turtle News!

This little guy, "Loco" (aka YYN 568), is ready to be set free! The folks at the Gulfarium say that he's an escapee from the TED research program in Galveston. He was close to shore looking for handouts because he left before he'd completed his pre-release training program and didn't know how to forage effectively.

I know this little loggerhead (Caretta caretta) had a great will to live when I met him two weeks ago. If all goes well, Mark, Monica, Michelle, Sally and I will be able to release him offshore of where Mark and I retrieved him. It should be fun!
