Sea turtles are so lovable. I have seen them in the wild, but only for vanishing moments in the ocean. Visiting the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Florida, U.S.A., allowed me to see these large and lovely turtles in person. This set of photographs was taken on my visit to that rescue center.

Once rehabbed, many can return to the shore just a few steps away.

These are such beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing. Releasing baby turtles is a dream come true for me.
