Sea Turtle, Tyrion, will not be released from Juno Beach

Juno Beach is ground zero for the sea turtle lovers in this area.  And the main attraction is the Loggerhead Marinelife Center located on US One.  Here, injured sea turtles are nursed back to health and then released again into the wilds.  Injuries include amputations from powerboats, attacks by sharks and the last couple of years, very cold weather.  The turtles get great care and when ready they are transported across the beach road just south of the Juno Beach Pier, carried down to the water and released to the thunderous applause of the waiting crowd.  It's easy to get a good view from behind the ropes unless one of the news cameraman decides to stand in front of you.

Saturday's release of Tyrion has been canceled due to rough waves.  What, you may ask, does the rough weather mean to a turtle?  Well, they are vulnerable to begin with so a delay of a day or two might make all the difference in their survival.  You can see a couple of videos on sea turtles and Loggerhead Marinelife Center on my You Tube channel at
