Love is in the air…Agape, a sub-adult loggerhead sea turtle is being returned to her ocean home!  Join us for a Public Sea Turtle Release this Saturday, February 4th on Sombrero Beach in Marathon.  Agape was rescued in December off of La Siesta resort in Islamorada.  A couple on their honeymoon rescued the sea turtle the found floating and unable to dive.  They named the turtle “Agape” the ancient Greek name for Love:  the highest form of love.  Agape had an intestinal impaction and low blood values.  Treatment at the Turtle Hospital included broad spectrum antibiotics, lactulose, vitamins and a healthy diet.  Agape is back in good health, feisty and ready to go home.  The Turtle Hospital ambulance will arrive with Agape at Sombrero Beach at 9:30 a.m. with release promptly at 10:00 a.m.  Bring your family and your friends to help us celebrate “the highest form of love”, returning this magnificent animal to her ocean home!
