A rescued sea turtle is back in the wild!

Loggerhead Marinelife Center released "Earhart" at Juno Beach Wednesday morning.

Earhart is a loggerhead sea turtle that was found at Florida Power and Light's St. Lucie site last August.

At the time, the turtle had anemia, hypoglycemia and other health issues.

After months of help from Loggerhead Marinelife Center, it is now healthy and back in the ocean!
