Being near and enjoying the beaches of South Florida, I have an appreciation for marine life. Yesterday, Chris and I made our almost annual journey to the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, Florida.

Yesterday was a special at the center as we were able to watch a loggerhead turtle names Margaret Ingels receive treatment. It was fascinating to watch the turtle in the tank and then see the process of draining the tank and moving the turtle into the hospital for treatment. I have many images of the process, but it was fascinating see the care that these turtles are provided in an effort to rehabilitate and then release them back into the wild. 

The Center does great work and Margaret Ingels' progress can be followed on the site at:
