Makahiki the Sea Turtle was discovered by a local Sandbridge family late last year and was rescued by the Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Team. She has been living, and rehabilitating for the past 6 months, at the Virginia Aquarium. She is finally ready to go back home to the Ocean!
Come out to First Landing State Park this morning (Thursday, June 14, 2012) at 11am to help see her off!
