Peter is a juvenile Loggerhead Sea Turtle that was found floating in a boat basin off of Stirrup Key in Marathon, January 2008. Blood analysis identified an infection which was treated with antibiotics.
With successful rehabilitation, the release was done just North of the Seven Mile Bridge. Participating in the release was Florida Governor Charlie Crist, Keys Mayor Mario Di Gennaro, chairman of the FWCC Rodney Barreto, Turtle Hospital director Richie Moretti and Turtle Hospital administrator Ryan Butts.
And with a splash, Peter returns to his element.
And quickly swims away.
