A Green sea turtle, named Scallywag, returned to the ocean in Hobe Sound this morning. Scallywag was injured by a shark and found off Blowing Rocks Preserve back in December of 2016.
Thankfully, the Nature Conservancy and Loggerhead Marinelife Center were able to nurse him back to health. Today, he said goodbye to his friends and waves his flipper while being carried back to the ocean.
Within seconds, he disappeared under the surf as a small crowd stood by and cheered. Check out some super cute pictures of Scallywag below!
