Loggerhead turtles in rehab at Surf City hospital released at sea

PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — 12 loggerhead sea turtles are finally back home in the Atlantic Ocean after recovering at the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Surf City.

Staff says the release was delayed because of sea conditions at the edge of the Gulf Stream nearly 60 miles offshore.

Hospital founder Jean Beasley says dive boat captains Paul Gregory and Mike Winfield took them out last week and gave their precious sea turtles another chance for a full life.
