After 21 months in rehab, Cougar, an endangered Kemp’s ridley sea turtle, received a clean bill of health and was ready for release.
After refueling with one last meal in our Animal Care facility, our team got Cougar ready to hit the road.
Our Animal Rescue team made sure he was comfortable in his transport crate for the trek to Florida.
After a long day of travel, Cougar and our Animal Rescue team finally arrived in Florida!
They made their way to New Smyrna beach where Cougar was successfully released!
