Here are a couple scenes from that early morning send-off.
|Volunteers scoop turtles from their rehab pens for their last exams.|
|Each turtle is given a last dose of fluids and layer|
of ointment to keep their skin moist while out of the water.
|Then the turtles are nestled into banana boxes for the journey.|
|Each banana box has a comfy, clean towel lining the bottom.|
|Turtles lined up and ready to go.|
|Safe travels, little one!|
