This Wednesday at 4:45 p.m. at Lori Wilson Park in Cocoa Beach, Brevard Zoo will release Trident, a subadult loggerhead sea turtle. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend this release.
Trident was admitted to the Zoo’s Sea Turtle Healing Center in July after being found by a University of Central Florida research team in the Trident Basin at Port Canaveral. “She” was debilitated, underweight and covered in barnacles, algae and leeches. Trident was treated with antibiotics, fed nutritious food and given the opportunity to rest.
