After 20 years in captivity, Yoshi the loggerhead sea turtle has traveled 37,000 km in 2 years
“We did not know all that much, but she crept into everybody’s hearts, and settled down really quickly.
“And she had an enormous personality.”
The aquarium staff learned a lot about caring for injured turtles from Yoshi, but soon also started getting requests to help more and more stranded and injured turtles.
Ms Musson said the aquarium had rehabilitated and released more than 600 sea turtles in the past 10 to 12 years.
