WHO: Loggerhead Marinelife Center of Juno Beach (LMC)
WHAT: Loggerhead Marinelife Center will release two sub-adult loggerhead sea turtles from its facility Wednesday morning. Krebster was found near Hutchinson Island with anemia, hypoglycemia and overall poor health due to starvation. Dr. Paul was accidentally hooked by an angler at the Juno Beach Pier.

Krebster and Dr. Paul will be prepared for release from LMC beginning at 10 a.m. One of LMC’s education docents will convey a history of the sea turtles’ journeys and final arrangements to visitors, followed by a procession to the beach for the turtles’ release into the ocean.
