SeaWorld Orlando’s Animal Rescue Team releases loggerhead sea turtle

(November 21, 2011) — Animal care experts from SeaWorld Orlando released an adult loggerhead sea turtle this morning at Lori Wilson Park just south of Cocoa Beach. The turtle was rescued on March 14, 2011 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station by park personal and brought to SeaWorld Orlando for treatment.  The turtle is approximately 20 yrs. old, 150 lbs. and is 2 feet and 4 inches long.
 
When the turtle arrived at SeaWorld it was emaciated, covered in barnacles and was unable to eat on its own.  Suffering from pneumonia, the turtle received antibiotics and was tube fed to provide valuable nutrition and was soon eating on its own.
 
The turtle was tagged prior to its release for future monitoring.
For 45 years, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment has helped animals in need — ill, injured and orphaned.  More than 20,000 animals have been rescued by our experts, and most of those animals are successfully treated and returned to the wild.
SeaWorld’s animal rescue team is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
