Story Behind the Photo: Loggerhead Sea Turtle

Loggerhead Turtle at the Turtle HospitalThis Loggerhead turtle was photographed at the Turtle Hospital in Marathon, FL, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping rehabilitate injured sea turtles. While the goal is to rehabilitate all of the turtles needing care, some become life long residents at the hospital if their injuries are too severe. These permanent residents are ambassadors to help educate the public about dangers to sea turtles. This particular turtle was a patient receiving treatment that would later be released back into the wild. Click here to buy a print and view the entire collection
