Rehabilitated Turtle Released by Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island

The Pumpkin King, a rescued sea turtle, was released on the Georgia coast this week after being rehabilitated at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.

The Pumpkin King was one of 70 cold-stunned sea turtles taken this winter by the Center after being found off Cape Cod in November and December.

The Pumpkin King was released into the Atlantic after being rehabilitated and treated for a corneal abscess.

The turtle was released with a satellite transmitter.  His progress can be followed at seaturtle.org

Visitors to St. Simons can visit the Georgia Sea Turtle Center and see other turtles and interesting exhibits.

The Center is on Jekyll Island. 

See jekyllisland.com  for more information.
