A Long Road Home

  • Monday, July 27, 2009

As a crowd of about 500 cheered him on, Wadmalaw completed his long journey home Sunday afternoon at Kiawah Island. Wadmalaw, a Kemp's ridley sea turtle was released back to the ocean after spending two years at the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Hospital recovering from a fishing hook lodged in its mouth.
Though Wadmalaw was one of three sea turtles released on Sunday, it was the crowd favorite as it headed for the water. The sea turtle has been a patient at the hospital longer than any other and was close to death before recovering and finally being released.
