Three more turtles head back to the ocean.

Three loggerhead sea turtles have recently been released from the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research Preservation on Long Island, NY. These turtles started their rehabilitation here at the New England Aquarium back in November and December. Junior was released on July 18th, Herb was released on July 25th and Jupiter, the smallest loggerhead of the Cape Cod 2008 cold-stun season, was released on July 28th.

All three turtles were fitted with satellite tags and can be tracked.

Here is the track for Junior, which Riverhead renamed Atlas.

Here is the track for Jupiter.

I have heard rumors that Santa, the last of the loggerheads that were sent to Riverhead, will be released very soon.
