(Press Release)_ 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.

Fortunately, after months of fluids, medications and close monitoring by LMC staff, both have fully recovered and have been approved for release in Juno Beach.
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.
