Gov. Rick Scott was in South Florida Monday to help release three endangered sea turtles into the ocean. The loggerhead turtles had been rehabilitated by the Miami Seaquarium and were released at Bill Baggs State Park in Key Biscayne.
Andrew Hertz, president and general manager of the Seaquarium, said the release was significant because the turtles were just getting to reproductive age. “They are the best hope for the next generation of sea turtles,” he said.
