Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission – A troubled loggerhead sea turtle was found upside down and wedged between rocks at Blowing Rocks Preserve.
Luckily, we came to the rescue alongside Nature Conservancy staff and turned things around.
Once the female loggerhead was flipped over and lifted out, she quickly crawled back into the water and swam off like a champ.
This is a good reminder of how you can help nesting sea turtles by filling in any holes that you dig in the sand.
Remember to report any injured or distressed sea turtles to the FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922).
