Route's Release!

You probably remember the story of Route, a Kemp's ridley sea turtle that stranded with a broken flipper. We reported in May that Route was transported to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center (GSTC) on Jekyll Island, GA, to enter his final phase of rehab. We are happy to report that Route was released on May 29.

  1. I'm so happy to hear about Route's recovery and release! When I visited the aquarium in the spring I saw Route and was fascinated with him. After my visit, I discovered the Rescue Blog and checked it regularly to learn more about Route and to keep up with his progress. The New England Aquarium's Turtle Rescue program is awesome and you guys do so many wonderful things for injured and stranded animals!
