A juvenile loggerhead sea turtle treated by the South Carolina Aquarium's Sea Turtle Rescue Program, will be released TOMORROW at the Folly Beach County Park at 4:30 pm.

As usual, the public is invited to attend the event. Although viewing the release is free, attendees should plan to pay for parking at the county park. I’ve attended a few sea turtle releases and have really enjoyed them. I highly recommend it, especially if you have kids.

Here’s some info on the turtle:
  • Name: Pluff
  • 65-pound juvenile loggerhead sea turtle
  • Found stuck in pluff mud in a marsh on Hilton Head Island in June 2013. Was very lethargic, thin and covered in barnacles. Blood tests showed an extremely low blood protein and anemia.
  • After just four months of care, Pluff has fully recovered.
