The Turtle Hospital in Marathon would like to invite residents and guests to Key West to participate in the release of “Stevie”, a 220 pound Loggerhead sea turtle that has been convalescing at the Turtle Hospital since November. The adult male was found off of Key West where he was found by Captain Steve of The Galloping Ghost. It was discovered at the Turtle Hospital that Stevie was suffering from a severe infection. After several months of antibiotics, Stevie will be returned home at Higgs Beach in Key West behind Solute’ restaurant. The event will be a sunset release on the beach at 6:00pm on Sunday May 2nd. Supporters are encouraged to come spend a beautiful evening on a Key West beach and wish Stevie luck on his return to the ocean.
