After a 13-Month Rehab, Andre the Sea Turtle Returns to the Sea:

For the past 13 months, Andre, an endangered green sea turtle at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in West Palm Beach has been undergoing a rehabilitation program and some medical procedures not often used on animals. On June 15, Andre was found on Juno Beach with severe watercraft injuries. Andre’s shell was badly damaged, and there was more than three pounds of sand pressing down on his internal organs – not to mention a collapsed lung and pneumonia. The outlook wasn’t good.

His rehab is complete, and he’ll be returning to the sea.
