Inverness's Story

Inverness is a subadult Loggerhead sea turtle that was rescued from the Deerfield Beach International Fishing Pier with a hook in their throat and fishing line entangled around their front flippers. This notorious sea turtle has since stranded and been recaptured  again at several fishing piers and re-released in suitable habitats around the state (note the interesting tracking routes)! Inverness arrived back at Gumbo Limbo in August 2022 with more fishing hooks, but was successfully re-released in Biscayne Bay National Park in October, where we hope she will enjoy the habitat and refrain from returning to another pier!
