Early Sunday morning a man named Dennis rescued a tiny Loggerhead turtle that was found floating just outside of his house boat. The little turtle was floating and wouldn’t move when Dennis got close so he decided to call for help.
A post-hatchling Loggerhead should be floating along in the Gulf Stream, miles offshore, and not washed in against a dock. The Florida Keys experienced very strong winds the past week that likely blew the turtle in to shore and he ran out of energy. We’ll be getting him re-energized and back on track in no time! Dennis decided to name the turtle “Jose”.
