JUNO BEACH, Fla. -- Two loggerhead sea turtles are back in their natural habitat.

The Loggerhead Marinelife Center released the pair Thursday morning.

One, named Auntie Roe, had been rescued from the intake canal of the St. Lucie Power plant.

The other, Mayor Dan, had been stranded on Singer Island.

Both were nursed back to health after various ailments.

Auntie Roe was fitted with a transmitter and her movements and behavior will be monitored.
