Two endangered green sea turtles were released in Florida waters after successful rehabilitation at the Miami Seaquarium.
The two turtles, names Dawg and Seaweed, were bid farewell by a group of summer campers Tuesday. Each turtle was released in the area it was rescued.
Dawg is a 5-pound, 13-inch juvenile who was rescued June 21 near Oleta River State Park, where the turtle was having trouble submerging.
Seaweed is a 12-pound, 10-inch juvenile that was rescued April 16 near a pier in John U. Lloyd State Park after it was found lethargic.
Kids who attended the release held posters that read “Keep on Swimming.”
