Gillbert, the loggerhead sea turtle, is heading home

If you're looking for something to do Thursday afternoon, why not head to the beach for a turtle sendoff?

Gillbert, a juvenile loggerhead sea turtle, is going home. He will be released from the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, at 2 p.m.

Gillbert was accidentally hooked by a fisherman off the beach. Experts soon learned he had a fishing hook lodged in his esophagus. The hook was removed and Gillbert is now healthy enough to return to the sea.
