Turtles returned to ocean after being taken to Ohio

August Representatives from U.S. Fish and Wildlife and the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Ohio release tiny loggerhead turtles off Riviera Beach in August. The turtles included 20 that had hatched from eggs a vacationing Ohio teacher had found exposed at Hillsboro Beach. She didn't think they'd hatch and took them back home to show to her inner-city students. But the eggs did hatch, so she handed them over to her local zoo. The turtles were flown by a chartered jet back to Florida and released into the ocean. R.C. Rique/Sun-Sentinel staff
