Florida: Two loggerheads find permanent home at SeaWorld’s TurtleTrek

The New Girls

Two female loggerhead sea turtles have moved into SeaWorld Orlando’s turtle habitat, TurtleTrek. The rescue turtles — Big Mama, a 245-pound adult, and Caton, a 95-pound sub-adult — were deemed non-releasable by wildlife officials. The pair joined 14 other rescued sea turtles, including a hawksbill, 10 greens and three loggerheads, which have also been deemed non-releasable. So far this year, SeaWorld Orlando has rescued 52 sea turtles and returned 45 to their natural habitat.
