BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard Zoo members took part in a rare triple release Monday afternoon.

Green sea turtles Emerald and Mera—along with an unnamed patient who came up to the Zookeepers in the day with a minor hook injury and was immediately deemed releasable—were sent home in Cape Canaveral.

Because the beaches of Brevard County are among the world’s most important nesting areas for sea turtles and the largest in the United States, a significant number of animals are found with injuries and illnesses each year.
