2 Sea Turtles Set to be Released in Juno Beach

Two sea turtles are set to be released by the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach.

The turtle release is planned for Thursday morning at the center on U.S. 1 in Juno Beach.

The Palm Beach Post reports the turtles named Yettie and Annie were found injured and were treated at the center.

Yettie is a large juvenile green sea turtle who was found floating in the Intracoastal Waterway in September. Yettie's injuries included an intestinal infection.

Annie is a Kemp's Ridley sea turtle who was brought to the center after being accidentally hooked by anglers at the Juno Beach pier earlier this week.
