BRUCE And Four Of His Sea Turtle Buddies Are Heading Home
If you've been around the Meyer 🍋 Lucas Group gang (meaning, us and our kiddos) you know how much we loooove Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach! (Not to be confused with Loggerhead Marina which is equally cool but for different reasons. More on that later.)
Loggerhead Marinelife Center is our go-to local destination for family friendly outings and we love participating in the center's events - most recently, the International Coastal Clean Up and their annual Turtleween kids party.
So, you better believe we will all be in attendance tomorrow when our favorite sea turtle, Bruce, and four of his Sea Turtle buddies are released back to the ocean!
If you haven't attended a LMC Turtle release yet, you absolutely need to find the time to do so at least once.
The release is scheduled for 11am on Tuesday with pre-release events starting at 10:30.
Loggerhead Marinelife Center rehabs sea turtles for a variety of reasons and keeps the public up to date on their progress. You can read about the different ailments from which the patients are recovering on their website and even take a peek at them via the Live Sea Turtle Cams.
Bruce came to the center from Hutchinson Island with 4 injured flippers (possibly from an encounter with a shark) and a systemic infection, among other wounds. We are thrilled to learn that he has recovered and is healthy enough to return to the ocean!
We 💗 Loggerhead Marinelife Center and are looking forward to Tuesday!
