The volunteer group Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife rescued the turtle on May 29th when it was found floating upside down in the surf.
LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- A loggerhead sea turtle is back in the Gulf of Mexico after about 3 weeks of rehab at CROW on Sanibel.
CROW determined the sea turtle had red tide poisoning.
Before being released near Fort Myers Beach, the turtle was tagged with a passive integrated transponder tag and a flipper tag on each of its front flippers.
This is the fifth sea turtle in 2018 to be treated and released from the clinic for red tide poisoning.
