Happy World Turtle Day! When this rescued loggerhead turtle arrived at the Aquarium last fall, it weighed just over three ounces. After seven months of care at the Aquarium, it weighs over two pounds! We’re caring for the young turtle until it’s big enough to be released back into the ocean. Thank you to Louie Zong for the perfect turtle-pairing tune!
In the wild, loggerheads migrate long distances, so they’re particularly vulnerable to accidental capture by commercial fisheries. Learn more: http://mbayaq.co/1SIjX9v
